The list of Top 100 Managed Service Providers developed by SC Media’s sister brand ChannelE2E reported that global government IT spending is likely to reach $557.3 billion in 2022, up 6.5% from last year.

Some of the growth will come from the American Rescue Plan Act of March 2021, which will fuel IT funding for sustainable growth, social programs, education, cybersecurity and digital inclusion, according to Gartner.

This level of spending bodes well for the government sector, as ChannelE2E research found annual recurring revenue among top MSPs in 2021 to be $70 million. Gartner adds that spending on software (up 12%) and IT services, including security (up 8.4%), will drive the market forward.

“In addition to general government expertise, MSPs are working to meet Cybersecurity Maturity Model certification requirements, while consulting with government agencies to align with the mandate, ChannelE2E found,” said ChannelE2E. said Joe Panettieri, editorial director of ChannelE2E.

John Heneghan, President of ECS, said he and his team continue to see the public sector market move towards managed service as the preferred service delivery model. Government agencies do this so they can access vendors like ECS with deep experience and the ability to focus on business-to-end-user IT outcomes.

“It’s more than cost savings,” Heneghan said. “It’s about cost stability and an increased focus on transformation that drives mission improvement.”

Heneghan also added that government cybersecurity standards, such as executive orders from the White House recently, are adding pressure on the agency’s resources. As a result, Heneghan said MSPs can offer a suite of cutting-edge technologies to deliver enterprise-scale zero-day threat defense, real-time asset visibility, vulnerability management, and security. advanced automated endpoint security response.
