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.
