7 Dirty Little Secrets About the Cloud

7 Dirty Little Secrets

7 dirty little secrets?  Just 7?  Well, let’s just start there.  The cloud isn’t just the future of your business — it’s the present. As of today, if at least a portion of your business does not operate in the cloud, you are already behind your competitors.  Let’s discuss why that is important to your future success!

Consider This…

  • Worldwide spending on public cloud services is poised to grow at a 19.4% compound annual growth rate – from $70B in 2015 to $141B in 2019.
  • By 2019, IDC predicts cloud IT infrastructure spending will be 46% of total expenditures in enterprise IT infrastructure.
  • 17% of enterprises now have more than 1,000 of their VMs in the public cloud.
  • 31% of enterprises now have more than 1,000 VMs in a private cloud.

On The Other Hand

We know that cloud adoption is occurring at a faster pace than anyone could have predicted.  Fewer than one-third of IT Managers report having the visibility and control they need to keep things in check. Does the cloud pose a danger to your organization?

Some IT Leaders say yes – the cloud introduces potential unnecessary and duplicated costs and exposure to cybersecurity risk.

Today’s most innovative companies are often praised for encouraging and achieving ingenuity at a low cost.  They do this by exploiting the flexibility of cloud computing. A welcome concept. But in practice, there’s a lot more to understand for a successful migration of your business to the cloud.
