We are indebted to our current and former colleagues who contributed to sections of this project, including George Perkovich, Nanjira Sambuli, Eyako Heh, June Lee, and Maya Odom.

The complexity of this material would not be possible to present without an excellent team of web engineers and designers. Special thanks go to John Sheridan, who was ever-accommodating and built a website well-suited to this content, and the Glen Echo Group, which helped us design many of the visual elements.

We also wish to thank the many government and industry leaders from around the world who expressed interest in our work and took time to discuss it with us.

This project was supported by the Microsoft Corporation, whose experts also helped us understand the growing complexity of the cloud services landscape, and through the Hewlett Foundation’s and Carnegie trustees’ ongoing support of Carnegie’s Technology and International Affairs Program.
