immixGroup FY12 Predictions Coming to Fruition
April 4, 2012 1 Comment
AOL Government recently published an article on government IT priorities, echoing our sentiments from an October 2011 budget briefing (see the excerpt below). The Market Intelligence team at immixGroup concurs with AOL Government’s findings, as we are seeing government wide focus on mobile computing, cloud computing, and cybersecurity, confirming predictions we made for FY12 – albeit with one caveat.
While Feds are doing a lot of talking about migration to cloud and mobile, we have seen little by way of actual spending on those related technologies this year. There is good news though: FY13’s budget documents suggest heavy investment in information management tools, security products, and development of supporting infrastructure necessary to implement cloud and mobile solutions. As Program Managers finish their budgetary planning for FY14 this spring, and GSA implements its Mobility Strategy (aka “Digital Strategy”) we will look forward to increased actual investment in products and services related to cloud and mobile technology closer to 2014 and 2015.
