Why Government Agencies are Flocking to Cloud Migration


There’s not an organization in today's world that isn’t making strides toward security and innovation by embracing technology, government organizations included. New algorithms, AI, and machine learning are driving new insights that can help government organizations deliver more engaging, personalized citizen services. 

Cutting-edge technology or not, the need to keep costs low and confidentiality high is of vital importance in a government agency, which is why so many agencies are turning to cloud computing.

In hybrid cloud computing, businesses use a mixture of public and private cloud along with on-premises infrastructure, linking the two together through an encrypted connection that allows data to flow seamlessly between them. 

What can it do for government agencies in particular? Here are a few of the top benefits of cloud migration for government agencies.

Increased Flexibility

Cloud computing lets you scale workloads automatically, up or down, in real-time. That immediate flexibility and scalability are helping government agencies respond to business growth or surges in traffic even faster. Partnering with a cloud provider with data centers across the world means you’ll never sacrifice performance or connectivity in the name of control. 

Cloud computing also means improved agility. Servers are live in a fraction of the time compared to purchasing and deploying servers on-premise. That ease means you’re faster to market and readily available for the communities and organizations who depend on you. 

IT resilience solutions like disaster recovery and backups-as-a-service (BaaS) make the process easier, more affordable, and improves reliability in the event of a disaster or cyberattack. As most cloud providers have redundancy built into their service, disaster recovery is a much quicker execution. This will ensure the security of your data in the cloud at a fraction of the cost compared to on-site storage.

Cost Savings

Where more traditional technology would force you to purchase computing capacity before it’s ever needed, cloud computing allows you to only pay for the capacity you need, when you need it. Put simply, cloud computing saves your bottom line and keeps your finance team happy. 

The scalability of the cloud means you’ll never be caught off-guard in an unanticipated surge in growth or traffic. This better use of resources equates to a more efficient budget. Additionally, cloud computing eliminates the added expense of housing and maintaining your infrastructure on-premise. Less costs up front and in the long run? Your budget will thank you. 

Collaboration for Built-In Security

Despite what some may believe, the cloud can actually be more secure than storing data on-premise. After all, partnering with any reputable cloud service provider means continuous performance improvement as their infrastructure is regularly updated with the latest high-performing technologies. When it comes to risk mitigation and response, government agencies gain peace of mind that their data is consistently protected by the most effective security measures available at any given time. 

As organizations are reassured with the proven security measures of the cloud, more and more public sector organizations are making the switch. In response to that demand, the security offered by cloud providers made great strides to outpace on-premise solutions.
