CloudView 2018: Hybrid Cloud, a Work in Progress for National Governments
This IDC Perspective covers three key aspects of 183 national government responses to the IDC's CloudView Survey of April 2018. National government cloud deployments and traits of hybrid cloud, agency perspectives on cloud security, and agency maturity in developing and deploying cloud are covered. Survey responses indicate that agencies are relying on a mix of cloud models to meet their needs and will continue to deploy hybrid cloud, yet there is a gap between requisite hybrid cloud management capabilities and current realities.
"Fifty-seven percent of national government agencies lack a 'bang for buck' return on their cloud investments," says Adelaide O'Brien, research director, IDC's Government Insights. "The majority of these agencies have yet to harness the power of cloud by leveraging proactive IT and LOB leadership to drive cloud policies and strategies for innovation," she adds.
