Published: December 19, 2019

Federal Market Analysis

Deltek’s Intelligence Community IT Landscape, FY 2019 - 2024 report takes an in depth look at the structure, policies, workforce, IT environment and historical spending propelling the Intelligence Community’s planned IT investments over the next five years.

The increasing sophistication of adversaries, expanding threat landscape, rapid pace of technology advancement and data proliferation fuel Intelligence Community (IC) demand for tools and resources to meet mission objectives. Information technology is a critical enabler for a community that relies heavily on its ability to collect, analyze and leverage data to deliver actionable intelligence in a timely manner.

IT solutions such as cloud computing, modern data management, big data, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence are in high demand by intelligence agencies looking to create IT environments that support their increasingly complex national security missions. The notoriously guarded agencies are striving to share and collaborate using IT as an enabler. They are also fostering private sector partnerships, working toward acquisition agility and investing in their workforce.

Driven by explosive data growth and demands to enhance analyst capabilities, Deltek forecasts the IC contractor addressable IT market to remain strong, growing from $9.9 billion in FY 2019 to $11.0 billion in FY 2024 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 2.2%.

Key Findings

  • Expanding Threats - U.S. adversaries and their tools and methods are becoming increasingly sophisticated, with expanding domains, such as space, cyber space, the Internet of Things, and insider threats. Demand by the IC for technology, tools, and information to monitor and predict adversary behavior will remain high.
  • Increasing Budgets - Within growing total IC budgets, IT budgets continue to rise to provide resources to combat the increasing threat landscape.
  • IT Demand - IT solutions such as cloud computing, big data analytics, artificial intelligence, robotic process automation, machine learning, cybersecurity and new cutting-edge technologies will remain in high demand by IC organizations to fulfill their missions.
  • Push to Collaborate - In order to keep pace and deliver actionable intelligence information in a timely manner, IC agencies will continue efforts for broader cross-agency collaboration, coordination, information sharing, IT integration and elimination of silos.
  • Workforce Challenges - IC workforce challenges in the areas of recruiting, retention, diversity and stove-piped processes may provide opportunities for contractors to fill gaps.
