Cloud adoption is a major part of the IT agenda today. Infrastructure as a Service will grow at 23% per year, from $25 billion in 2016 to $72 billion in 2020. Enterprises are shifting to cloud infrastructure, for agility, growth, and cost reasons. While the cloud offers unique benefits like scalability and flexibility, IT leaders still have concerns around cloud security and compliance.
Scriptics recently conducted a survey on the state of multi-cloud infrastructure adoption. We asked IT decision makers (working at organizations with 500+ employees) on how they were currently using cloud services.
Our survey shows how cloud infrastructure services are changing workload placement, IT spending, and sourcing strategies. The emergence of the ‘cloud-first enterprise’ implies a willingness to use cloud services for greater efficiency, innovation, and productivity. Learn how enterprises are embracing a cloud-first mindset (multi-cloud) to drive business transformation.
Interesting, all the executives we polled were using some form of public cloud infrastructure. We found that 90% of organizations were using cloud services for at least a year. 7% of respondents have been using public cloud for more than seven years!
IT leaders continue to bet big on cloud infrastructure. 84% expect to move a greater proportion of workloads to the cloud in the next two years. Some enterprises are a bit more cautious – 16% expect to shift to cloud infrastructure over the next five years. The time horizon may differ, but public cloud is an unstoppable growth engine.
Enterprises are figuring out how to migrate, manage, and optimize cloud workloads. Most IT executives believe they’re just getting started with public cloud. We classified cloud infrastructure maturity into three stages, emerging, developing, and mature. 71% believe they are still at the emerging or developing stages of cloud maturity. Only 29% think their cloud practices have reached a state of maturity.
