We teamed up with Everest Group to conduct a first of its kind research project around the enterprise adoption of cloud computing. The survey looked at how businesses currently use cloud computing as well as their plans for future adoption. How is adoption trending across the major service platforms; Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service and Software-as-a-Service? What are the adoption patterns across public, private and hybrid cloud hosting options?
The results are in and well-timed with the kickoff of Cloud Connect Chicago in just a few days. There is a real need for independent market data on cloud adoption as we shift from an era of defining and envisioning the cloud to where we are today – putting cloud into practice to drive real business value. But our research went one step further in comparing and contrasting the viewpoints of cloud buyers with those of cloud sellers. The results suggest a changing buyer mindset that will challenge our current assumptions and serve as a reality check for cloud suppliers.
The full results of the survey will be disclosed and discussed during a keynote address from Everest Group Partner, Scott Bils, but the following infographic highlights some of the key takeaways from the research:
It’s an exciting time in enterprise technology as we usher in a new era of innovation built on Cloud Computing. Please join Scott and I at Cloud Connect Chicago to get the real story on Enterprise Cloud Adoption, network with your peers and get up to speed on the latest technology solutions. See you there!
