According to Forrester’s Business Technographics Infrastructure Survey, 2021, although public cloud is in use by close to 90% of all government agencies world-wide, Forrester frequently fields questions from Public sector cloud leaders asking whether hybrid cloud will survive in the world of cloud migration. The answer is obvious: Yes, it will. Executing on new technology can be complex and costly. Completely switching from today's current infrastructure reality to one based 100% on public cloud is so prohibitively expensive that the practice is almost non-existent. Yet only 63% of government agencies claim to be using a hybrid approach despite reporting reservations about public cloud from a sovereignty, privacy, compliance, and skills perspective. For those agencies who have embraced an open hybrid cloud the benefits are obvious - a more resilient, secure and performant computing environment with a greater economic impact.
