In the same vein, the IBM team encouraged the government to define standard operating procedures and security policies for all agencies and data centers when it comes to technology that can help officials govern more effectively, efficiently and securely. Modern technologies such as cloud computing and virtualization can make vital information more readily available and protected. Over the long term, an energy efficient computer disaster recovery center outside of Addis Ababa could be useful, the IBM team said. Ethiopia's National Data Center can also streamline and standardize the way it procures and manages support from commercial vendors."IBM's Corporate Service Corps program has given us access to IBM's vast experience," said Dr. Abiyot Bayou, Director of e-Governance for Ethiopia's ICT Ministry. "IBM's team immersed itself in critical areas in which support was needed. I was impressed with the quality of the job they have delivered in this short period of time. I hope we will have a chance to host other IBM teams in the future."
