Cloud Connect 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 and examined their future adoption plans.
The results suggest a changing buyer mindset that will challenge our current assumptions and serve as a reality check for cloud suppliers. The biggest disconnect in the results found that buyers and providers see cloud adoption drivers differently.
- Business users are adopting for agility, flexibility and time-to market advantages
- Whereas service providers believe it’s due to cost.
This suggests that providers are stuck in legacy mindset selling ‘next generation infrastructure’ instead of a new paradigm. The following Infographic highlights some of the key takeaways from the research and the top 3 adoption drivers of cloud buyers:
It’s an exciting time in enterprise technology as we usher in a new era of innovation built on Cloud Computing.
