U.S. Government information, statistics, and spending on Cloud Computing:
- $20 billion out of $80 billion (25%) of total annual IT budget is being dedicated to cloud systems
- Despite reduced IT spending, cloud computing spending is expected to rise because it is seen as a way of cutting cost
- Federal private cloud services spending will reach $1.7 billion in FY2014. IDC Government Insights expects to see this market reach $7.7 billion by FY2017.
