New SAIC Cloud Survey Highlights Federal Government’s Challenges and Successes with Multi-cloud Services and Solutions

January 25, 2023

SAIC-sponsored independent research finds federal agencies are adopting cloud and exploring the benefits of DevSecOps and artificial intelligence (AI)

Science Applications International Corp. (NYSE: SAIC) announced today findings from an independent survey of defense and civilian federal government employees identifying the current status, challenges and success in implementation and utilization of cloud, DevSecOps and AI.

“SAIC commissioned this new research because government leaders face unique challenges that must be thoroughly understood in order to accelerate adoption of cost-effective secure multi-cloud solutions,” stated Bob Ritchie, chief technology officer at SAIC. “The survey results uncover not just technology opportunities and challenges government leaders face in leveraging cloud for strategic advantage, but also the realities of the state of DevSecOps and AI maturity within government. To optimize valuable innovation, technical experts and business leaders must embrace strategic and agile collaboration.”

Conducted by Market Connections, a portfolio platform of GovExec, in the fourth quarter of 2022, the survey polled IT and business influencers and decision makers in the federal government regarding IT and digital services within their agencies.

The survey results revealed:

  • Most federal agencies use at least one cloud provider, and 70% use two or more. However, when consuming services from one or multiple clouds, insufficient budgeting and forecasting are considerable cost challenges.
  • Even though a majority of federal agencies are at some stage of the DevSecOps implementation process, more than half (54%) of the respondents say integration is the most difficult component of deploying a DevSecOps solution.
  • AI is on federal agencies’ radars, but 57% of respondents cite policy and governance as a top barrier to implementing AI.

More survey findings, along with the accompanying white paper, are being made available to attendees at the SAIC sponsored government and industry conference OutFront 2023, which is being held today in Rosslyn, VA.
