Perspective: Federal Cloud Growth Is Substantial Through 2019, But Provider Landscape Is in Flux

Author: Shawn P. McCarthy Research Director
Abstract

This IDC Government Insights Perspective examines the impact of ongoing efforts by the U.S. Federal CIO Council and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to get government agencies to move some types of IT systems to the cloud — particularly new systems, stored data, and mobile solutions — as the use of cloud-based solutions continues to grow in the U.S. federal government. The increased level of spending on cloud solutions indicates that this effort is having a significant long-term effect. Total cloud spending is going up, and the nature of cloud spending itself is changing.
