Government IT Spending in 2013

Government IT spending in 2013 will be a tiny bit less than it was in 2012. According to a Gartner report that was published in the July 26, 2013 issue of Processor Magazine, government agencies will be spending about one tenth of one percent less this year than they did in 2012.

Spending is going up in three areas: Mobile technologies, IT modernization, and cloud computing. Gartner points out that cloud computing expenditures are treated as operational expenses. By contrast, buying in-house servers and networks to support traditional processing would be treated as a capital expenses.

Gartner also mentions that fifty-two percent of government organizations support the BYOD (bring your own device) to work movement, and allow personal smartphones to be used on the job.
