Socrata Survey: 75% of Gov’t Tech Execs Open to Cloud-Based Software Adoption

cloudA new Socrata-commissioned survey says 75 percent of technology executives at government agencies consider themselves open to adoption of cloud-based software applications.

EMC Research polled at least 500 technology leaders at local, state and federal government agencies and found nearly 80 percent of the respondents’ computer applications are located on local networks, according to an Aug. 13 article posted by Socrata.

“The public sector is being forced to do more with less today, and it’s obvious to technology decision-makers in government that they have to be in the cloud to manage their data efficiently and cost-effectively,” said Robert Runge, a member of the board of directors at Socrata.

“Moving from legacy technology to simple, user-friendly digital cloud solutions is critically important to the public sector keeping pace with the people they serve,” said Ian Stewart, a principal at EMC Research.
