STUDY SHOWS PUBLIC SECTOR ORGANISATIONS ARE LEADING IN MULTI- CLOUD ADOPTION

Nutanix , a leader in hybrid multicloud computing , has announced the public sector findings of its global 2022 Enterprise Cloud Index ( ECI ) survey and research report , which measures enterprise progress with cloud adoption , including the US federal government and global public education sub-sectors .

The research showed that more public sector organisations than average have adopted multi-cloud as a primary IT operating model , outpacing the global average . Adoption is expected to nearly double from 39 % to 67 % in the next three years . and data integration , 75 % agree that a hybrid multi-cloud model , an IT operating model with multiple clouds both private and public with interoperability between , is ideal .
“ The evolution to a multi-cloud IT infrastructure that spans a mix of private and public clouds is underway across the globe , with the public sector on the fast track ,” said Chip George , VP of Public Sector at Nutanix . “ This evolution requires a dedication to inherent , strong platform security to fully execute on the multi-cloud vision and extend capabilities from the core to the tactical edge . Public sector organisations must look to hybrid multi-cloud solutions that meet security requirements while delivering visibility , manageability and consistent policyenforcement coupled with tight cost control across environments .”
Public sector survey respondents were asked about their current cloud challenges , how they ’ re running business and mission-critical applications now and where they plan to run them in the future . Respondents were also asked about the impact of the pandemic on recent , current and future IT infrastructure decisions and how IT strategy and priorities may change because of it . x
Multi-cloud is on the rise and is now the dominant IT architecture in use worldwide and it ’ s also dominant across the public sector . In fact , the global public education sub-sector reported the largest usage among all ECI respondents ( 69 %), with adoption nearly twice the global average .
The US federal sub-sector is also well ahead of the average , with 47 % having adopted multi-cloud . However , the complexity of managing across cloud borders remains a major challenge for public sector organisations as 85 % agreed that to succeed , their organisations need to simplify the management of multiple clouds .
