Cloud innovations are moving past the exploration stage and are already finding the real-world adoption. Meanwhile, the globalization has accelerated, and a backlash has generated as a result of economic inequalities. Trust in government has completely reduced, and job automation crisis is fast approaching. Governments can certainly take significant action with new approaches to the policies and the services leveraging advanced technologies of today. Governments are innovating to cope with newer technologies and trends to build a better future for the people.
After years of hype, a cloud-empowered government may, at last, soon arrive. There are shreds of evidence that support the conclusion, from passing mentions (notices) at industry events all the way to the White House's strategies for government modernization. Earlier this month, research by Bloomberg Government has put some more quantitative haul behind the case by anticipating record-setting cloud purchasing by the end of fiscal 2018. This is empowering everyone following the business throughout the previous years. Governments are now focusing on the new opportunities and better approaches to move towards the customers in the space.
Customers are being very open to the cloud-based solutions than ever before and having the capacity to offer innovation in the cloud. The industry needs to be flexible enough to pivot accordingly. Former U.S. CIO Vivek Kundra's 25 Point Plan in 2010 and today portrays that, most government cloud spending has been on Infrastructure as a Service. Existing information and remaining burdens are being moved into the cloud, to a great extent as a part of the Data Center Optimization Initiative. It doesn't completely anticipate the growth in cloud during the coming fiscal year. Rather, SaaS, particularly for regular business necessities like ERP, supply chain management, and financial/CPIC administration, is probably going to end up becoming more common in the government space.
By the next year, the world is expected to see fewer PaaS, more SaaS, and availability of end-to-end integrated solutions with deployment capabilities packaged together. These comprehensive solutions will help increase the accessibility and scalability of the cloud technology, allowing the governments to buy complete end-to-end solutions and deploy at the earliest.
