Computational and data grids have been developed to manage large amounts of data produced in scientific collaborations. While the developed technologies could be employed to help the daily work in the public sector and in healthcare, their wide adaptation has not been seen, yet. In this paper we present a survey, which we conducted to find out how the decision makers and system specialists in the public service sector see the role of Grid technologies in their future work. The respondents of the survey work as decision makers and systems specialists in the healthcare and the public services domain in Switzerland.
