Opportunity for cost savings

Feds say the main benefit of moving mission-critical apps to the cloud is cost savings; it’s estimated they could save 21 percent of their IT budget — $16.6 billion annually — if every agency moves just three mission-critical apps to the cloud.

Early adopters report success

Of those who have moved mission-critical apps to the cloud, 91 percent report success.
Feds have moved mission-critical apps, such as financial management, procurement, logistics, CRM systems and project management, to the cloud.

A way forward

Despite the challenges, Feds see a future in the cloud: In two years, they expect 26 percent of mission-critical apps to be in the cloud; in five years, 44 percent.
