The required funds for the "Government Cloud" infrastructure were estimated and submitted to the appropriate authorities. Considering the "Government Cloud" Concept, a draft Transition Plan for the "Government Cloud" will be produced and will cover the relocation of state information systems and resources from 2020 to 2023. As part of the Government Cloud project, 29 government organizations have already migrated a portion of their information resources to the "Azcloud Government Solutions" cloud. The benefits of the AZCLOUD self-governing platform were highlighted, which functions on the basis of a single window model to make the use "Azcloud Government Solutions" as easy and convenient as possible.

Work on the “Government Cloud” (G-cloud) project has already started in order to minimize public administration costs and improve coordination amongst government agencies by effectively integrating government information systems and resources into the “Government Cloud”.

According to international practice, countries that migrate to the "Government Cloud" save 25-30% on IT costs. Therefore, there is the potential for more effective use of IT infrastructure on the basis of "Pool principle".
