Research and Markets: Global Government Cloud Market Report 2013-2018 - Agency, Delivery, Deployment Analysis

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dk4wgq/government_cloud) has announced the addition of the "Global Government Cloud Market Report 2013-2018" report to their offering.

This study forecasts the government cloud market will grow from $2.87 billion in 2013 to $18.48 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 45.1% from 2013 to 2018.

The market research report categorizes the global government cloud market on the basis of agencies, deployment models, delivery modes, applications and regions.

The main advantages of the implementation of cloud computing are improvement in delivered services and the reduction in operating costs. When government organizations adopt cloud services, the basic assumption is that they are generally more productive, innovative and operate with greater agility. But, there are numerous challenges that these public bodies face when acquiring any of the ICT services. One such challenge is the associated concerns over security of information and data. Therefore, these agencies implement many policies and procedures for security classification and protective control of information assets.

A quick evaluation using a risk based approach to information security management at government premises, quickly recognizes important pointers for implementation of such systems. It is seen that government data is not a homogeneous entity and that the deployments models, such as public, private, community and hybrid cloud, are suitable for different categories of information and services. At a fundamental level,cloud computing is changing the ability of small public organizations to acquire new ICT capabilities.

Apart from using private and community cloud, many public organizations have started to take advantage of the opportunities of public cloud services, as well. Government organizations are working collaboratively with industries and research institutes, through existing mechanisms, to identify greater benefits of cloud computing. Therefore, the agencies are carefully evaluating and considering the growth of various applications of cloud into the different areas of the government sectors, in the short to mid-term tenure.

Major government organizations of developed nations have defined their cloud strategies and are determined to include their participation in a centralized government cloud. They are also showing their consent over leveraging public clouds, wherever appropriate. Government adoption of cloud technology is increasing in uptake levels. It is strongly being considered as a strategic economic decision, which will be a beneficial platform putting forth various advantages for the nation in the future.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addr...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information.

The IoT Will Grow: In what might be the most obvious prediction of the decade, the IoT will continue to expand next year, with more and more devices coming online every single day.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
