Let’s start with the good news. Yesteryear’s emerging technologies are now becoming a mainstay in government, and agencies have taken notable moves to stay afloat in an ocean of information. The intelligence community’s shift to the cloud got the buzz going -- momentum that will continue in 2015 as agencies’ use matures and cloud migrations expand further.

With cloud advances, agencies are also shoring up their security postures. The Defense Department, for example, revised its cloud security model to modify security levels that distinguish between national security systems and DOD computing systems.

But with the advanced use of emerging technologies come concerns about government overstepping its boundaries. In a post-Snowden era, privacy has become a key issue. How do citizens, concerned about their personal information, protect against government surveillance?

The Nextgov Tech Trends 2015 ebook reflects some of 2014’s most impactful trends and areas sure to continue in the year ahead. It also the highlights some of the technology growing pains agencies will likely face in 2015.
