Few State and Local Governments Prepared for the Impact of the Big Five IT Trends

  • Few State and Local Governments Prepared for the Impact of the Big Five IT Trends-

    Risks and limitations

    As demand for infrastructure rapidly outstrips the supply, capacity isn’t all that will suffer. Respondents also report that as a result of the infrastructure imbalance created by unsynchronized big five adoption, their agency will face security risks (59 percent), bandwidth limitations (55 percent), storage limitations (44 percent) and network latency (40 percent).

MeriTalk, a public-private partnership focused on improving the outcomes of government IT, recently announced the results of its new report, “Big Five in Overdrive: Are State and Local Networks Ready?” The study, underwritten by Brocade, examines how the implementation of the big five – data center consolidation, mobility, security, Big Data, and cloud computing – will affect state and local government IT. According to the report, most state and local organizations plan to fully deploy the big five in the next three years, but almost all (94 percent) say their agency is not fully prepared for the resulting demands on the IT organization.
