Filling the Void in Cloud Adoption with Cloud Management Providers

Filling the Void in Cloud Adoption with Cloud Management Providers

As companies contemplate how the cloud can fit into their IT and business plans, two recurring concerns are present: performance and security. As data from Stratecast’s 2014 Cloud Computing survey demonstrates, more than half of the survey respondents rated several criteria as “very important” in their decisions not to use the cloud.2

Despite these reservations, cloud adoption is on a positive trajectory. In comparison of 2014 survey results with those from 2013, the following conclusions were drawn:

The percentage of companies using public cloud has more than tripled.

The percentage of companies planning to implement public cloud has doubled.

The percentage of companies choosing not to implement public cloud has declined by more than half.

This is the topic of this SPIE.
