Federal Agencies Could Save $19 Billion on IT Spending

Show Me The MoneyA new report from Meritalk shows that key technology initiatives –  like consolidation, virtualization, cloud computing, remote access, and infrastructure diversification – could drive $19.7 billion in IT efficiencies and cost savings in the federal government.  A survey of 300 Federal network managers provides peer-sourced savings estimates for each of these key IT infrastructure initiatives.  By fully leveraging all five initiatives, network managers believe they could save 24% of their IT budgets.

Some agencies are reaping the benefits already. So far agencies have saved 10% of their budgets, or $8.5 billion annually. While consolidation offers the biggest total potential savings, the biggest success so far has come in remote access, where 40% of federal agencies have fully deployed solutions, saving $2.3 billion in the process.  As a leading provider of secure remote access solutions to the federal government,  we can confirm that our customers are achieving substantial savings from increased operating efficiency and reduced expenditures.
