Government agencies will create enough data in the next two years to fill 20 million filing cabinets, according to a recent MeriTalk survey of federal CIOs and IT managers. 60 percent of civilian agencies and over 40 percent of Defense and intelligence officials surveyed said they are now learning how big data initiatives can help solve this problem. Those surveyed said content storage and personnel issues are some of their biggest challenges to using big data effectively.
MeriTalk Cloud Computing Exchange has calculated that departments implementing cloud strategies now are saving about $5.5 billion, per their report, "Cloudy with a Chance of Savings."
Aileen Black, vice president of federal at IT virtualization company VMware, told In Depth with Francis Rose she thinks agencies are well into the mobile future. VMware, along with Carahsoft and MeriTalk, surveyed more than 150 agency chief information officers and IT managers for a report, "Mobile Power Government: Driving Increasingly Productive, Efficient Agencies."

Representatives from several government agencies offered best practice talks about their own encounters with web 2.0 during the recent Adobe Government Open Source Conference.
