State of the Cloud
Cloud adoption has moved past the early stages and into the beginnings of a mass adoption curve. According to Gartner, cloud-only accounts for 28 percent of IT spend. This may seem surprising given all the hype and grandiose statements by CIO’s over the past 5 years along the lines of, “We are moving everything to the cloud!”
The simple reality is, 72 percent of IT spend has not gone there yet. What we now know is, a large portion won’t go to public cloud at all. Whether the reason is control, reliability, and yes…even cost, the cloud is simply not the right move for many businesses to use for their applications.
