Federal IT is fundamentally broken. GAO tells us Uncle Sam spends 70 percent, or US$56 billion, of the IT budget on legacy systems.* How do we euthanize yesterday’s IT and consolidate for tomorrow when there’s no money for new development? Agencies turn toward Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Hosting new application development in the cloud gives agencies the opportunity to develop, experiment, innovate, and test for less time and money.
MeriTalk’s recent study, “PaaS or Play? Cloud’s Next Move,” examines PaaS’ current state of play within the Federal government. Download the report to find out:
