Cloud Computing Penetration into Enterprise IT Gaining Momentum

 In Tech Industry News

Today we release our new study, Five Key Themes in Enterprise Cloud Computing Migration. It discusses the changing Cloud market from a broad perspective and provides probably the first segmentation of what we call the Early Cloud Era.  Cloud computing penetration into enterprise IT is no doubt gaining momentum.

Cloud Computing Penetration Growing Quickly

The report introduces the three segments, Pioneers, Planners, and Stragglers and looks at the market through this lens.  Specifically, it examines cloud computing penetration of different service deployment models, drivers that encourage adoption, and concerns that limit it.  It also looks at enterprise projects before, during, and after Cloud deployment, as well as the role of the different vendors.  Finally, we also look at the role of the all-important channel partners in those enterprise IT Cloud computing deployments.

Of early cloud users, they expect to have 30% penetration into enterprise IT by 2015.  No surprise to us, as we believe in the benefits of the cloud model.  It’s faster and cheaper to get to market.

It’s worth saying again that this study reports from a broad perspective.  However, it is by no means exhaustive.  There is always more to say and the right recommendations to make, themselves highly dependent on the audience, the tech segment or the technology or telecom segment.

In other words, the same piece of data can mean something different to a security hardware company.  To that end, if our vast data set may answer a specific question anyone might have, we are happy to take a look. Just let us know.

Five Key Themes in Enterprise Cloud Computing Migration is a joint effort.  WaveLength conducted the analysis and created the report.  We would like to thank Winn Technology Group, who did a fantastic job with data collection.

We are also thankful for friends and colleagues at Channel Navigators, LLC and Telecom Strategy Partners LLC.  They were great sources of thoughtful analysis and recommendations.  We’d also like to thank graphics partner Carlos Espinosa at SpeckledJay, who always makes our work artistically shine.
