A Deltek report indicates federal civilian and defense agencies have collectively spent about $2.29 billion on cloud computing products and services during fiscal 2015.
Alex Rossino, a principal research analyst at Deltek, writes in a blog article published Tuesday the company found that the U.S. Defense Department awarded $1.14 billion in contracts to cloud vendors over the past fiscal year and non-defense organizations issued about $1.15 billion worth of cloud contracts.
World Wide Technology won a potential six-year, $427 million contract in December 2014 to provide enterprise storage services contract to the Defense Information Systems Agency,
Rossino noted that FY 2015 software-as-a-service investment hit $214 million in the civilian sector and $306 million at DoD.
The government invested almost $1 billion in infrastructure-as-a-service platforms, he added.
