A new Meritalk study, underwritten by Brocade, examines how the implementation of the Big Five of IT-data center consolidationmobilitysecuritybig data, and cloud computing – will affect state and local government.  According to the report, most state and local organizations plan to fully deploy the Big Five in the next three years, but almost all say their agency is not fully prepared for the resulting demands on the IT organization and the network infrastructure.

The study examines:

  • The potential combined network impact of the Big Five
  • The current state of readiness for state and local agencies
  • How agencies can take advantage of Big Five benefits without bottlenecks, downtime, and security risks
