Federal agencies spent nearly $9 billion in 2015 on software, according to a recent congressional report.
The OMB has directed federal agencies to adopt practices that will simplify and streamline software acquisition. Current software procurement practices are grossly inefficient, according to OMB.

Feds Value – but Don't Always Use – Big Data Tools for Cybersecurity


U.S. government agencies can significantly improve their ability to deal with cybersecurity problems by utilizing big data analytics. However, agencies are finding it difficult to fully benefit from these advanced analytical tools for a variety of reasons — including dealing with the sheer volume of data, which will only keep growing. Cyberthreats hide in plain sight and exist on government networks for an average of 16 days before they are detected, suggests a recent report from MeriTalk.

Network Upgrades Key to Federal IT Agenda


The U.S. government could save billions of dollars in the management of IT resources by significantly improving outdated and overworked networks. Federal agencies are making progress on five key IT initiatives: data consolidation, virtualization, cloud computing, remote access and infrastructure diversification. However, they could save an additional 24 percent of their IT budgets — or approximately $19.7 billion annually — by fully exploiting the savings that these initiatives potentially can generate.
