Cloud computing is transforming businesses by delivering hosted services that provide tremendous cost benefits, free vital resources, and promote ongoing innovation. While the private sector continues to embrace cloud computing benefits, government agencies have not been standing idle. In fact, government has begun aggressively moving to the cloud for many of the same reasons as private corporations.

Market Overview

Digital transformation is the top-ranked business priority among government CIOs. To fuel that transformation, government is looking to the cloud. Delivering services efficiently and achieving cost savings are the top two drivers of cloud adoption in government.

Business Challenges

As government agencies pursue digital transformation, they face unique challenges.
Partner Challenges

Security and compliance

Data security is of major concern to government agencies as they are bound to protect citizens’ critical data and services. Increasingly, government’s trust in the security capabilities available within the cloud to protect, encrypt, isolate, and authenticate its sensitive data is growing.

Outdated technology

Government agencies face the challenges of outdated legacy hardware, data center overload, and inadequate infrastructure. Cloud computing, including SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS can enable government entities to embrace new technologies without the costs and demands of updating and replacing existing hardware and legacy software.

Insufficient resources

A retirement wave and the fact that personnel budgets are even more restricted combine to make it much more difficult to attract highly skilled IT talent in the volume necessary. Partnering with a cloud service removes the pressure to hire and retain in-house talent and is cost-effective and budget friendly.

Why Ingram Micro Cloud?

Value Added Resellers (VARs) and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) are in the position to support government IT departments as they make their tech initiatives more open, responsive, up-to-date, and secure. With solutions from Ingram Micro Cloud, VARs and MSPs can be the catalysts for making these initiatives a reality.
