Federal IT Budget Backs Growth in Cloud PlaysFebruary 17, 2011 No Comments
U.S. President Barack Obama’s proposed 2012 Federal budget included proposals to improve the inefficiencies in government data centers. The budget outlines the adoption of cloud-computing and virtualization technologies to lower IT spending costs and increase agility.
“In the proposed budget, planned spending on IT is expected to reach $79.5 billion, up 2 percent from 2010 enacted levels of $78.0 billion. This modest increase is actually better than we had expected — we expected a cut,” Barclays Capital said in a note to clients.
