WaveLength/Winn Report Says Early Cloud Users and Planners Estimate 30% of IT will be Cloud-based by 2015
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. It introduces the three segments, Pioneers, Planners, and Stragglers and looks at the market through this lens. Specifically, it examines 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 and channel partners in those enterprise IT Cloud computing deployments.
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 our partner, Winn Technology Group, who did a fantastic job with data collection. We are also thankful for the contributions from our friends and colleagues at Channel Navigators, LLC and Telecom Strategy Partners LLC. We’d also like to thank graphics partner Beyond5280, who makes our work artistically shine.
