  7. 7. Chris Chant – outgoing Director of G-Cloud"It is unacceptable not to be able to do our work from any device we choose. Thatspossible, and has been for some time, and its outrageous we cant do that.It is unacceptable to pay, and these figures are PAC figures, up to £3,500 per person peryear for a desktop service.It is unacceptable for your corporate desktop to take 10 minutes to boot up, and the sameamount of time to close down. But thats the truth of what goes on every day ingovernment IT, and I suspect public sector too.Its unacceptable for staff to be unable to access Twitter or YouTube when they use thoseservices for what they do; and its unacceptable for call centre staff not able to access thevery service they are supporting in the call centre. These all sound funny, but when youthink of the consequences of that, its truly dreadful."
