S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 6515 2021-2022 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E May 4, 2021 ___________ Introduced by Sen. SAVINO -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Internet and Technology AN ACT to amend the state technology law, in relation to cloud service utilization and readiness of state agencies THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature finds that New York must ensure that it continuously evaluates how information technology services are delivered to those who live and work in our state and that the services provided by the state must keep pace with the technical solutions and offerings in the marketplace. A key part of achieving this goal is to ensure that the state of New York aggressively incorporates the use of cloud technologies into state information technology service delivery models. The legislature further finds that, as with any technology, cloud services must be implemented in a manner that continues to ensure the availability, security, and privacy of state and citizen data. This requires ongoing oversight and management, as well as reworked internal governance processes to ensure flexibility for state employees to deploy on-demand best-in-class solutions. The legislature further finds that leveraging cloud services models will allow the state to: speed up delivery of business solutions through faster paths to production; provide flexible solutions capable of quickly adapting to new and changing business solutions; reduce oper- ations and maintenance costs for basic needs such as power and real estate; provide transparency so that customers are more aware of what they receive for their money; provide service elasticity to support increased citizen needs at peak times; and provide a structure that allows for a more resilient environment in the case of a disaster or service outage.
