Exploring the Cloud: Governments' adoption 

Government entities are starting to embrace the cloud, but what does it mean for the public sector?

Exploring the Cloud discusses the perceived benefits and challenges of cloud computing environments and highlights how governments around the world are beginning to adopt cloud.


The report is based on a survey of 430 public sector executives in 10 countries, as well as 808 private sector executives, on their cloud expectations and strategies.


Key insights

  • 47 percent consider security as their most significant challenge, however almost 80 percent admit that they would be more confident if cloud services were certified by a government body.
