Agencies primed for pick-up in cloud investment in 2015 Spending increases for cloud have been spare across federal agencies for two years, stalled by sequestration, a slowdown in system consolidation, and the complexity of establishing enterprise architecture standard. But expect to see a boost in cloud spending, according to a report by IDC Government Insights, which predicts an end to the stagnation by mid 2014, especially after 2015. The acceleration will be sup- ported by enterprise architecture standards, which will help create a commodity approach to cloud solu- tions, IDC predicts. Other highlights of the research include: 1. Federal private cloud services spending will reach $1.7 billion in FY2014. 2. Across other industries, Software as a Service (SaaS) is the leading type of cloud. But in government, it s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Between now and 2017, IaaS will grow to $5.4 billion, SaaS will grow to $2.4 and Platform as a Service (PaaS) will grow to $1.1 billion. 3. The Treasury Department is the leading consumer of public cloud, while the Social Security Adminis- tration (SSA) is the leader for private cloud, and the Justice Department is the leader for community cloud. 4. From a technology standpoint, the Justice Department is the lead- ing consumer of SaaS while SSA leads for PaaS and IaaS. --- GCN Sta GCN AUGUST 2013 • GCN.COM 3 AUGUST 2013 18
