IDC's CloudView Survey Reveals Security as the Top Concern and Benefit for Government

Author: Adelaide O'Brien
Research Director, Government Digital Transformation Strategies


This IDC Perspective presents findings from IDC's March 2017 CloudView Survey, a global survey of 298 government decision makers at the national, regional (state), and local levels. Survey responses include IT budgets for on-premise and cloud solutions in 2017 and predicted budgets for 2019. Top organizational concerns and top benefits for each type of cloud deployed are also presented.

"As the use of cloud solutions in government increases, both business and IT leaders are recognizing that the safety and success of their agency depends on finding ways to take full advantage of cloud innovation while addressing security concerns, avoiding vendor and price lock-in, recognizing regulatory and compliance issues, managing IT governance issues, and ensuring appropriate skills to implement and/or manage cloud services," says Adelaide O'Brien, research director, IDC Government Insights.
