TYSONS CORNER, VA, March 17, 2017 — A Dell EMC-sponsored survey indicates that 64 percent of federal information technology leaders have noted their agencies using software-defined data centers due to factors such as agility, flexibility and efficiency, ExecutiveBiz reported Tuesday.

The company said Monday the federal extension of its “State of IT Trends” report found that 81 percent of respondents consider security as an important feature that contributes to SDDC adoption, followed by 61 percent who pointed to costs.

“Today there is more data available to inform the federal government, citizens and the defense community than ever before,” said Steve Harris, vice president and general manager of Dell EMC’s federal business and an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2017.

“Software-defined solutions help government realize the value of this data and accelerate its digital journey.”
