Disruption and Opportunity Emerging From Declining Federal IT Market, According to Deltek


(PRWEB) July 16, 2014

According to a new report from Deltek, federal IT spending will decline from $ 102 billion in FY 2014 to $ 94 billion in FY 2019 as agencies continue to streamline operations and improve the efficiency of IT programs. IT reform initiatives continue to compel agencies to maximize budgets and strengthen IT performance, which results in both reductions and investments.

Delteks new GovWin IQ report Federal IT Market, 2014-2019, provides analysis of contractor-addressable budgets across the federal Hardware, Software, IT Services, and Communications and Network Services markets helping contractors identify areas of budget growth and contraction so they can better plan and execute their business development strategies. Delteks forecast includes IT spending not reported through the Office and Management and Budget (OMB), such as the judicial and legislative branches, the intelligence community, federal organizations that are not subject to federal IT budget reporting requirements, and IT embedded in large defense systems.

IT policies related to data center optimization, strategic sourcing, shared services and cloud computing are driving some cost savings. Agencies are reprioritizing and rescoping IT programs in an effort to maximize existing budgets and set the stage for lower spending in the future. This transition to a leaner federal government and the ability to sustain it requires technologies that facilitate the consolidation, integration and standardization necessary to develop uniform IT platforms known as Common Operating Environments.

The proliferation of Common Operating Environments in many agencies is the basis of their approach to delivering enterprise IT, said Deltek Analyst Alex Rossino. Getting there requires a variety of investments and activities, from deploying standardized hardware and applications to reengineering IT networks.

This enterprise-centric perspective will result in budget declines over the long run. In order to reach this goal within existing budget boundaries, agencies will eliminate redundant investments, focus on the must-haves, favor lower cost alternatives, and utilize strategic sourcing contracts.

In the course of this transformation, evolving IT policies will have an impact on all IT market segments. Strategic sourcing and data center consolidation and optimization efforts will put downward pressure on the IT Hardware and Software markets. The IT Services segment is similarly impacted by the administrations focus on reducing service contracting, which represents the largest category of federal contracting. While not exempt from cuts, the Communications and Network Services market is sustained by growing bandwidth and mobility requirements.

Agencies will also continue to rally budget dollars around technology solutions that support mission priorities, such as cybersecurity and data analytics. Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) and Health IT will be critical for the Department of Defense in particular.

With or without sequestration in 2016, budget modesty has become the norm as agencies plan for the future. After experiencing sequestration in 2013, agency leaders want more control of where cuts happen, said John Slye, Deltek Analyst. This means redefining priorities and acquisition strategies to fit within new budget realities.

Contractors must continue to adjust to this reality by ensuring that they have the strategies and tactics in place to pursue growth opportunities and protect market share.

Robust Demand from SMBs to Drive Growth in Cloud Based Office Productivity Software Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) July 18, 2012

Follow us on LinkedIn Defined simply as an important variable that bridges the value of an output (product or service) with the cost of inputs, productivity is an important element in any workplace, be it in a factory environment or in an office. The level of office productivity as measured in the quality of the output, its timeliness and cost, is largely dependent on the right tools provided to empower the employee to perform better. The importance of office productivity can be put into perspective by the fact that lower productivity inputs and efficiency levels tend to hit businesses hard and risk their survival and sustainability, while employees with high productivity achievements are bound to steer the business in right direction. Companies are increasingly waking up to the importance of determining, tracking, and encouraging office productivity. This juxtaposed by the fact that measuring and improving productivity is trickier in an office than in a factory, is throwing the spotlight on a wide gamut of new generation office productivity tools. As the developed world shifts massively from manufacturing jobs to knowledge and service based lines of work, office productivity is being pushed even harder into the spotlight. A key emerging trend against this backdrop is the thoughtful integration of office productivity tools in most core business processes, which until now has been easily overlooked and dismissed. As companies step up to the challenge of doing more with less resources and run smarter, and leaner with fewer staff, the focus is on increasing business productivity, and the tools to achieve the same.

Cloud computing is expected to reshape the office productivity software market, creating new opportunities for professional productivity software developers, developing companies and vendors, and catalyzing vital changes in conventional product offerings for the consumers. Epitomizing frictionless self-service transactions, the cloud delivery models are irreversibly changing how office productivity software is developed, distributed and consumed. Right from providing remote storage for office productivity software to enabling provision of the same on demand and as a service, cloud computing will usher in a more democratic model of software availability and affordability, by providing a cost effective platform for office productivity software to reside and be accessible to enterprise users. The use of cloud computing in office productivity software delivery market is set to expand considerably in the upcoming years as small and medium sized productivity software developers/companies step up their efforts to build a cloud infrastructure for promoting and distributing their solutions.

The global cloud based productivity software market is expected to witness robust growth in the coming years, as enterprises increasingly opt for hybrid solutions and focus on supplementing in-house office productivity deployments with on-demand cloud solutions. This is primarily because of the fact that although client desktop offerings provide users a chance to gain complete control over their solutions, the strategy involves several bottlenecks encountered in the form of limited storage and computing capabilities. Also, traditional solutions are rigid and can only be used within the data center. These challenges are effectively met through cloud technology, which allow users to store and manage office productivity solutions such as word processors, spreadsheets, presentation apps, calendars, task planning applications, e-learning software and collaboration tools in a remote storage location and access the same on-demand as services without downloading and installing the software on their computer hard drives.

The need to increase collaboration among team members and increase operational flexibility in an enterprise are the primary factors driving increasing adoption of cloud based office productivity software among enterprises. Available over the cloud in a shared network, cloud based office productivity software enables users working from multiple systems to access their documents anywhere and anytime, make changes and share the same simultaneously, thereby creating a collaborative environment wherein all team members can participate in planning, designing and executing a project. Designed to support diverse workloads managed by organizations, cloud based office productivity software allows companies to cohesively generate and collect different types of information, including text, image, video and numeric data and ensure its useful sharing across the enterprise thus realizing a collaborative effort. By enabling information sharing across the enterprise, these solutions also provide tremendous flexibility for organizations to be prepared and respond to any changes in their productivity tasks.

Growing adoption of enterprise mobility strategy and rapid increase in number of mobile workers will additionally fuel demand for cloud based office productivity software market. Available over the cloud in a shared network, cloud based office productivity software enables mobile workers to easily access, make changes and save documents from a remote location from comfort of their handsets even as the same document is being used by an on-the-floor employee, thereby allowing for information sharing between corporate headquarters and mobile workers. Given the need for mobile workforce to constantly remain in touch with corporate headquarters and access business information even when away, the demand for office productivity solutions hosted on the cloud is growing at a robust pace. The SMB market will continue to be the primary revenue contributor for the cloud based office productivity software market. With SMBs generally having limited access to resources for building an internal IT team, acquiring necessary hardware and software solutions and requiring a data center that can quickly be up and running, the on-demand office productivity solutions that help address such critical business needs have therefore found instant success in this consumer cluster. Flexible pricing plans and easy implementation modules are expected to continue to drive demand for cloud based office productivity software market in the SMB segment.

As stated by the new market research report on Cloud Based Office Productivity Software, Asia-Pacific represents the most prominent regional market for cloud based office productivity software service, with annual revenue from the region waxing at a CAGR of about 32.05% over the analysis period 2009-2018. Thanks to robust economic development in emerging markets such as China and India, rapid industrialization, increasing shift of manufacturing and corporate activity from developed markets from developing countries, and subsequent boom in the enterprise segment in the region are the primary factors driving demand for cloud based office productivity software in the region. The need to match international standards in terms of productivity and efficiency and gain competitive edge are especially encouraging Asian enterprises to increasingly invest in cloud based office productivity solutions.

Major players in the global marketplace include Amazon Web Services LLC, Apple Inc., AT&T Inc., Adobe Systems Incorporated, Fujitsu Ltd., Google Inc., Hewlett Packard, Microsoft Corporation, International Business Machines, NetSuite Inc., Novell, Oracle Corporation, RedHat, Inc., Salesforce.com, Inc., Hancom Inc., Zoho Corporation, among others.

Growing Application in Media Storage and Data Centres Drives the Global Micro Servers Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 20, 2014

Follow us on LinkedIn Defined as a server comprising of multiple nodes, micro servers are increasingly emerging as a low-cost and energy-efficient solution for processing low-intensive/less-demanding workloads. These servers are mainly finding usage in applications ranging from low-end dedicated hosting and simple content delivery nodes, to low-end web serving among others. While the low price point is the major factor driving popularity of micro servers among small and medium-sized businesses, energy-efficiency both in terms of power consumption and cooling, and space-saving attributes are encouraging their widespread adoption among larger enterprises.

While media storage is currently the leading application area for micro servers, adoption in data centres is gaining increased momentum due to the growing emphasis on aspects such as storage and security of data in the corporate arena. Cloud computing and analytics are the other application areas where micro servers are finding extensive usage. Driven by the growing establishment of internal data centers and the increasing focus on achieving greater efficiency in terms of workload processing, Web 2.0 companies are likely to emerge as major adopters of micro servers. These servers are also expected to find increased use in short-term projects, as they are relatively cheaper to deploy as compared to virtual servers.

Micro servers are gearing up to weaken the stronghold of virtualization owing to the growing need to achieve greater efficiencies. Given their low cost and energy efficiency benefits, micro servers are emerging as attractive alternatives to virtualization of large servers in data centers, with a single large server replaced by a cluster of micro servers, offering similar computational abilities. Growing trend towards server clustering is further encouraging this trend, largely as the result of constrained IT budgets.

As stated by the new market research report Micro Servers, the United States represents the largest market worldwide, while Asia Pacific is forecast to emerge as the fastest growing market with a CAGG of 88.1% over the analysis period. Asia-Pacific is mainly being led by strong IT spending in China. Further, the expanding base of small and medium sized businesses in developing Asian countries with relatively smaller IT budgets and high volume of small workloads is also fuelling adoption of micro servers in the region.

Major players in the market include Acer America Corporation, Dell Inc., Fujitsu Limited, Hewlett-Packard Company, Super Micro Computer Inc., and TYAN Computers Corp., among others.

The research report titled Micro Servers: A Global Strategic Business Report announced by Global Industry Analysts Inc., provides a comprehensive review of market trends, drivers, challenges, mergers, and other strategic industry activities. The report provides market estimates and projections in US dollars for all major geographic markets including the US, Canada, Japan, Europe (France, Germany, Italy, UK, Spain, Russia, and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Rest of World.

Federal Cybersecurity Contracted Spending to Exceed $11 Billion by 2018, According to Deltek


Herndon, Va. (PRWEB) December 04, 2013

According to Delteks new report, Federal Information Security Market, FY 2013-2018, federal contracted spending on cybersecurity will continue to grow from nearly $ 9 billion in FY 2013 to $ 11.4 billion in FY 2018, as a result of multiple initiatives aimed at improving the overall cybersecurity posture of federal agencies. Persistent threats, complex and evolving policy issues, and multiple changing technologies compound ongoing cyber-workforce shortages to drive investments despite constrained federal IT funding.

The new Deltek GovWin IQ report provides insight into contractor-addressable federal security budgets helping contractors identify areas of budget growth so they can better plan and execute their business development strategies.

Forecast Reflects Continued Priority of IT Security Investment

Security services and technologies will continue to be must-have investments for federal agencies, even in a tight budgetary environment. As agencies increase their dependence on systems, and as the amount of data and the volume and diversity of attacks on government systems and that data continue to rise, agencies must invest to ensure system security is up-to-date to meet current demands while anticipating future threats.

Agencies are grappling with handling the sheer variety and pace of cyber threats with their available resource mix of people, skillsets and tools, says Deltek analyst John Slye. Keeping core security policies and protocols current while finding ways to get ahead of the threats requires investment in people and technologies, even in lean fiscal times.

Agencies are also working to adapt to changing security guidelines. Evolving cybersecurity policy, standards and roles can make it difficult for agencies to identify the best approaches and solutions for their information systems, as well as how their efforts fit within the overall government and national cybersecurity and critical infrastructure protection landscape.

There is some new momentum with recent White House policy directives and the frameworks and standards that have come out of them, says Deltek analyst Kyra Fussell. But the evolution of a cohesive government-wide cybersecurity approach continues to be difficult since it touches multiple areas of governance, personnel, technology standards and internal processes.

Several high-profile security failures to protect classified and other sensitive information have led to increased scrutiny of security processes and government and contracted personnel. Overhauling data access policies and processes, as well as deploying security measures at the data element level, will require both process know-how as well as the right technologies, says Slye.

Growing technology trends and priorities across the federal government, such as mobility and cloud computing, have significant information security implications and drive new requirements for security solutions. Advances in security technologies like continuous monitoring, advanced network protections, and data analytics are finding strong reception within agencies.

Delteks forecast includes information security spending for more than twenty federal agencies and across six market segments, including Security Operations; Planning, Policy, and Program Management; Compliance; Identity and Access Management; Training, Education and Awareness; and Infrastructure Security.
