Cloud native apps are growing in popularity

Federal IT modernization

The federal government has been actively working to modernize for more than 30 years. Yet according to the Government Accountability Office (GAO), about 80 percent of the more than $100 billion spent on IT and cyber-related investments every year is for operations and maintenance of existing IT investments. Legacy IT maintenance costs account for about $29 billion of that total spending.

This spending represents an array of technology-related obstacles the government faces on the road to modernization. Contributing to those obstacles are legislation and executive orders that are pushing agencies to modernize their technology.

Something needs to shift if the government is to modernize while meeting mandates. That shift is a move to the cloud.
