State & Local IT Market Forecast, 2012-2017 (May 2012)
Deltek's State and Local IT Market, 2012-2017 forecast report analyzes issues that will shape the size and direction for vendor-furnished information systems and services nationwide.
Deltek’s State and Local IT Market Forecast, 2012–2017 report details how state and local demand for vendor-furnished IT systems and services will grow from $56.4 billion in 2012 to $64.9 billion in 2017, bringing $8.5 billion in new spending to the market at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.1%.
This report analyzes the trends in the state and local information technology market using a sample of the IT budget request recently released by governors, mayors, and county commissions, coupled with Deltek’s in-depth knowledge and understanding of state and local IT procurement and long-range IT plans to forecast spending trends over the next five years. When forecasting this market, Deltek focuses on trends related to technology, acquisition processes and regulations that will shape the size and direction of this marketplace.
Key forces currently shaping this market include:
- Significant improvement in the economic and fiscal fundamentals of state and local governments
- Governors declaring victory of fiscal crises (a bit prematurely) and pivoting toward growth agendas
- Implementation of technology to dramatically bend the cost curves in the Education (primary/secondary), General Government services, and Justice/Public Safety verticals
- Programmatic streamlining that will drive reactive IT consumption for integration and modernization later in the forecast period
- Governments reaching the breaking point of lifecycle extensions that have prevented refresh of commodity IT such as PCs, printers, and LAN infrastructure
The market remains fettered with uncertainty due in part to federal partisan gridlock that prevents national coordination of key initiatives such as health IT and Pre-K through 12 education reform.
