    Federal agencies are making notable progress with remote access and consolidation initiatives, with 70 percent and 62 percent, respectively, partially or fully deployed. However, while agencies identify consolidation as the greatest savings opportunity, they currently are only capturing 40 percent of potential savings.

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.
