Next Mix of IT Initiatives Offer Compelling, Immediate Savings for Federal Agencies-2 Next

Existing networks present a significant barrier. While respondents identify the network as the IT infrastructure component most vital to enabling efficiencies and cost-savings opportunities, two-thirds of Federal network managers say their networks are ill equipped to meet their mission needs, let alone support new technology initiatives.

MeriTalk, a public-private partnership focused on improving the outcomes of government IT, recently announced the results of its new report, "Show Me the Money: The Key to Doubling Agency Savings." The study, underwritten by Brocade, reveals that Federal agencies are making progress on a series of key IT initiatives – consolidation, virtualization, cloud computing, remote access, and infrastructure diversification – but are leaving a significant amount of money on the table. According to the report, by fully leveraging all five initiatives, network managers believe they could save 24 percent of their IT budgets – or approximately a combined $19.7 billion annually – more than double their current savings.
