Cloud in 2014: Cloud's Biggest Year Yet

Flickr user Kathy Lin

Cloud’s growth in the federal government over the last several years has been nothing short of explosive and 2014 is set to be one of the most significant years for making forward progress on realizing the promise of the Cloud First policy. 

With the Defense Department making serious strides toward bringing cloud to the defense community and GSA looking to open cloud brokerages (third-party providers that help agencies negotiate the best deals on cloud services) to the federal community, this year, more than any other, looks to be the year of the cloud. 

In this report, learn about:

  • The growth of cloud in the federal government since the start of the Cloud First policy and what's ahead in 2014.
  • How cloud brokers are set to change the way everyone procures and manages cloud services. 
  • The strides the Defense Department is making in implementing an enterprise-wide secure cloud system.
