Issue Brief: ATARC Federal Cloud Infrastructure Survey Results Summary

Underwritten by:  Rackspace Technology, VMware, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and Carahsoft Technology Corp.

The Advanced Technology Academic Research Center (ATARC) conducted a research study with the purpose to identify the current status, challenges, successes in the implementation and utilization of Multicloud services and solutions in the Federal space.

The survey summary is based on the responses from over 100 participants representing 36 federal agencies ranging in seniority from executives to individual contributors.

Survey respondents painted a picture of a federal IT landscape that has made substantial progress in its cloud journey but where the challenges associated with multicloud management, understanding security and compliance requirements, and achieving FedRAMP ATO for cloud services continues to form a significant barrier.
