Despite many countries and individual agencies adopting cloud-first policies, adoption remains stubbornly low for the majority. This research note provides valuable insight for Government CIOs on assessing their current cloud status and devising a present-to-2025 strategy, accordingly.

Eight years since the initial government cloud first policy was published, countries, regional governments and individual agencies have, or are still in the process of adopting or deciding about, their own policies. Gartner receives many inquiries from the national Governments and agencies from all jurisdictions and tiers as to whether or not they should consider migrating to the public cloud. These inquiries fall across three, broad types:

  • Those looking to justify avoiding moving to the cloud
  • Those looking to understand how to migrate safely to the cloud
  • Those agencies who increasingly want to optimize their cloud usage
