Take a look at Gartner's 2015 CIO Agenda: A Government Perspective to better understand the challenges that Government CIOs face, and starting building a roadmap for overcoming them.

The need to deliver better services at lower costs is driving every level of government to look at improving internal and external collaboration. This is naturally creating heightened interest in cloud computing, social tools, mobile devices, and, of course, collaborative work platforms.

Gartner’s research note ‘2015 CIO Agenda: A Government Perspective'– which we are sharing today – talks to this appetite:  “Infrastructure, analytics and cloud computing are the top three technology priorities for government CIOs in all tiers and regions,” the report states.

But there are still challenges for the government. The same paragraph from the Gartner report goes on to say, “but the adoption of cloud services in government lags behind other industries.”

The desire for change is clear enough - our own growing portfolio of government and public sector clients certainly points to a surge in adoption. But what’s holding back wider and faster public sector adoption?

Concerns over security.

After all, 91% of CIOs who participated in the Gartner 2015 CIO Agenda research think the digital world creates new types and increased levels of risk in government.

Government CIOs are clearly eager to translate their vision into action, but understandably they need to be shown they can have the confidence that taking the step does not undermine security. But with Huddle, you can put forward a viable, proven and fully security-accredited cloud collaboration service that will deliver the efficiency gains, cost savings and collaborative working practices that government IT is seeking.

For UK public sector, Huddle is accredited to manage information that is rated as OFFICIAL under the Government Security Classification Policy (GSC), while for the US, we have been granted the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Authority to Operate (ATO).
