Cloud computing will continue to be the premier topic in federal IT in 2019, but officials expect the former fervor for all-cloud, public solutions will shift more toward hybrid cloud infrastructures. Federal executives said Tuesday at the VMware Public Sector Innovation Summit, sponsored by FedScoop, that they anticipate the complexity of agency networks will continue to make integrating cloud solutions with on-premise legacy systems an attractive option, as opposed to the costs of a complete cloud migration.“There’s going to be more hybrid cloud solutions out there. Given, done,” said Maria Roat, CIO at the Small Business Administration. “We’re already working on an option at SBA. So while there’s hybrid solutions, we are already managing our entire on-prem [facilities], as well as all three of our cloud environments from cloud-based tools. So we are doing all of that now.”
