This IDC Survey analyzes European public sector IT infrastructure transformation. European public sectors' need to digitally transform, while copying with tight budgets, is pushing government and education institutions to a tipping point in maturity, where they need to embrace new architectural and operational approaches.
Modern architectures (based on APIs, microservices, and containers) and agile operational approaches (such as DevOps) will empower European public sector to decompose applications and embed intelligence into core processes, such as welfare program and student management. With the adoption of agile architectures, public sectors must take a more strategic approach to their infrastructure transformation to increase elasticity and speed of deployment, automate datacenter operations, and ensure security is embedded in system design.
Public sector IT executives need an infrastructure transformation strategy that empowers them to bring together a hybrid, multicloud environment; better control over the cost of infrastructure; and embedded security and compliance in system design and operations.
