MIT Survey: What A Response !!

We’ve been quite surprised by the number of survey responses we’ve received. 

THANK YOU !! 
That subset of the cloud computing community interested in national security and public sector applications is certainly making its views known. To whet your appetite for the upcoming special report in Military Information Technology magazine and to encourage more participation, here are some preliminary results:

  • We have enjoyed participation from a wide range or Federal, State, Local and Public Sector organizations, including Department of Defense, Department of Transportation, Department of Veterans Affairs, NASA,  United States Marine Corps, United States Navy, United States Air Force, United State Army, NATO, Air National Guard, Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Spokane Regional Health District, Manvel Police Department, Norwalk, CT Department of Public Works,  Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare, New York State Education Department and the  Texas Health & Human Services Commission.
  • Representation from industry includes Apptis, Inc., BAE Systems, Cisco Systems, CollabNet, Computer Sciences Corporation, eVectis Technologies, General Dynamics, General Electric, IBM, Iterative Designs, Mission Mobility, MITRE, Nirvanix, Raytheon, RightScale,  Sila Solutions Group, Venturian Group, Verizon Federal and ViaSat
  • Over 50 people from both government and industry have volunteered to be interviewed for this report. More Federal government participation is STRONGLY encouraged. Remember, your comments are for non-attribution and can be provided anonymously.  All we ask is that you provide the Department or Agency.
  • In response to the question,”Are you familiar with cloud computing?”,  only 18% of the respondents answered “Not at all”. 45% indicated they were “Somewhat familiar” while 19% said they were “Very familiar”.
  • Overall the top challenge for customers who are considering a cloud computing solution is “Capital budget limitations” at 26% with “storage limitations” second at 16%.
  • The overwhelming main concern with any cloud computing solution is “Security” at 61%
