Survey seeks the truth about public sector cloud implementation

Harnessing the Cloud aims to discover how much the public sector has embraced the cloud

A new survey – Harnessing the Cloud – has been launched by GovTech Leaders and Agilisys to discover how much the public sector has embraced the cloud and how its usage is developing.

The Agilisys Cloud Adoption Survey 2016 found many public sector organisations have yet to embrace the cloud fully. Even among the organisations which have adopted cloud services, there remain some lingering concerns – and in some cases, misconceptions – which have prevented the public sector from fully realising the benefits of the cloud.

This latest survey aims to find out if fears over the cloud have been dispelled, how far cloud solutions have moved forward, whether or not decision makers are more informed about cloud solutions and if there’s a greater willingness to go ‘cloud first’, amongst other things.

Andrew Gough, from cloud and digital transformation specialist Agilisys, commented: “It is two years since our last cloud survey which can be a long time in technology but a short time to plan and invest in the public sector.

“The broad perception is that organisations are more comfortable with deploying cloud technology to save money and, increasingly, to enable business (and, dare I say it, digital) transformation. The anniversary is a great time to revisit the themes and topics we touched on in the last survey.

“We hope that all respondents and readers will benefit from data and insights into what is really happening and what barriers still exist.  We look forward to sharing the results via the GovTech Leaders community in the Autumn.”

The short survey, which should take less than 10 minutes to complete, can be accessed here.
