In a presentation on "Potential of cloud computing in government" to the 
"Cloud Computing Conference and Expo 2010" in Sydney on 9 September 
2010, Yusuf J. Mansuri, First Assistant Secretary, ICT Strategic & 
Corporate Services Division, Department of Human Services discussed the 
idea of  shared services in a whole of government cloud: 

He suggested that one of the major government agencies could take the 
lead to set up such a facility, with standards set by the Australian 
Government Information Management Office (AGIMO). Other agencies could 
then use the services provided. This would be a step beyond the shared 
data centre facilities already being established by government, in 
commercial facilities, such as Canberra Data Centres 

In my presentation to the conference on "Mobility, Cloud Computing and 
Green IT", I suggested that data, web and application optimisations 
could make such facilities 10 to 100 times more efficient
