Deltek's Federal Priorities Spotlight: Data Center Optimization examines the progress and trends in data center consolidation and optimization that are modernizing federal IT environments.

The federal government continues to invest in data center consolidation and optimization in order to modernize IT infrastructures and achieve cost savings. Deltek takes a strategic look at how federal agencies are progressing towards their data center initiatives, the technologies used to drive that progress, and the generated cost savings within the federal data center environment.

Key Findings:

  • Deltek found that federal agencies remained consistent yet slow in achieving Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) targets.
  • From FY 2016 to FY 2017, total data center IT spending fell from $3.11B to $3.06B due to a decrease in hardware expenditures.
  • Agencies have succeeded in a cumulative cost savings of $2.1B since FY 2012 while facing a DCOI total cost savings goal of $2.7B by the end of FY 2018.
  • Virtualization, cloud computing, shared services and automated energy monitoring tools are just some of the methods and technologies agencies are using to accomplish data center optimization and consolidation.
  • Critical Insight for Vendors
