The latest study reveals Public Sector IT Investment is Focused on AI, Ransomware Protection, and Operational Efficiency.

In its sixth annual global Public Sector Enterprise Cloud Index (ECI) survey and research report, Nutanix measured enterprise progress with cloud adoption in the industry. The research showed that Public Sector IT leaders expect substantial near-term adoption of multiple IT operating models (87%), yet current usage (57%) is slightly behind the average compared to other industries (60%).

This year’s Public Sector ECI report revealed that the use of hybrid multi cloud models in the industry is forecasted to quadruple over the next one to three years as IT decision-makers at public sector organizations look to modernize data centers into private clouds and preserve choice in public cloud deployments. Primary drivers for IT infrastructure investments in the next year include ransomware prevention, IT modernization, and AI strategy support to gain flexibility and access new capabilities to improve operations and enable mission success.

“Security and compliance are the biggest drivers of application relocation and the top priority for CIO/CTOs, as public sector organizations recover from high rates of ransomware attacks.”

Greg O’Connell, Sr. Director Sales, Public Sector, Nutanix

The public sector is faced with regulatory and compliance mandates regarding where and how end user data can be stored, which creates complexity as organizations work to modernize their IT infrastructure. Hybrid multicloud solutions provide key benefits to public sector organizations including simplifying operations, improving data privacy and security, optimizing where apps and data live, and preparing for technologies like AI. The Public Sector ECI report found the adoption of hybrid multicloud varied significantly from across sub sectors, with public education leading the way, while federal and state governments lagged.

“Much like other industries, public sector organizations are eager to modernize their IT infrastructure and lay the foundation to adopt new technologies to deliver better services and experiences for constituents. In fact, 80% of the public sector said they expect to increase their investments in AI technology in the next year,” said Greg O’Connell, Sr. Director Sales, Public Sector, Nutanix. 

Public sector survey respondents were asked about their current cloud challenges, how they’re running business and mission critical applications today, and where they plan to run them in the future. Respondents in the public sector most often chose the infrastructure’s ability to protect against ransomware and other malware as their single top priority (17%). This factor was followed by the infrastructure’s performance/response time potential (15%) and its ability to allow IT to flexibly move workloads across private and public cloud platforms (14%).

For the sixth consecutive year, Vanson Bourne conducted research on behalf of Nutanix, surveying 1,500 IT and DevOps/Platform Engineering decision-makers around the world in December 2023. The respondent base spanned multiple industries, business sizes, and geographies, including North and South America; Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA); and Asia-Pacific-Japan (APJ) region.
