A recent study from Deltek found that despite many companies and federal agencies looking to invest in cloud computing technology, many organizations are not quite ready for purchases. Cloud computing services offer organizations many benefits, and the growing popularity of the technology is creating demand for IT professionals with cloud computer training to help run the virtual networks.After viewing the success of cloud computing technology in the private sector, the Office of Management and Budget and the federal CIO have been encouraging federal agencies to adopt the technology as a means of consolidating data centers and reducing IT costs. Data center consolidation streamlines and integrates IT infrastructure and activities, resulting in reduced expenditures and more efficient operations, The Washington Post reported.The Deltek study measured the levels of cloud readiness for each federal agency looking to deploy cloud computing. The study found the U.S. Department of Transportation, for example, estimates that 90 percent of its infrastructure will be integrated by the end of 2012, and 63 percent of its data center consolidation will be complete. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security will only have completed 48.8 percent of its consolidation effort by the end of the year.But the Obama administration continues to push big data initiatives. The Washington Post reported the administration is encouraging federal agencies to improve their analysis of large volumes of data, specifically information regarding Medicare and Medicaid programs. The program is investing more than $200 million in six federal agencies to advance data collection and analytics.
