Frank Baitman, the Health and Human Services Department's chief information officer, says his agency enjoys working with Amazon Web Services, but the government would like to see other cloud providers step up. "We recognize different solutions are needed for different problems. Ultimately we would love to have a competitive environment that brings best value to the taxpayer and keeps vendors innovating," Baitman said at an AWS conference. He said the department plans to start a cloud-broker model that will evaluate the best approaches for a particular job.
