What steps should agencies take to better prepare for a multi-cloud future?


Agencies do not feel prepared to manage current multi-cloud environments. While most Federal IT decision makers say their agency already uses multiple cloud platforms (81 percent), the majority – 75 percent – also say managing a multi-cloud environment will be one of their top challenges over the next five years, a MeriTalk report reveals.

What are agencies doing?

Some agencies are taking steps to prepare, including training their IT workforce for multi-cloud (42 percent), implementing access controls (35 percent), and establishing a multi-cloud leadership team (32 percent). But overall, nearly half of Feds agree their agency is not adequately preparing for their multi-cloud future.
