Business Agility Cited as Primary Reason for Moving to the Cloud

Check out this great opinion piece from Kamesh Pemmaraju today – Cloud Leaders:  Act Now. Citing recent survey research, the article focuses on the business value of cloud computing. According to the article:

“Business agility” was the No. 1 driver of cloud computing adoption, mentioned by 49 percent of respondents (see figure below)”

Reasons for Moving to the Cloud: Sandhill.comHowever, while the data shows significant benefits of cloud computing, there’s clearly going to be a requirement for greater cloud-to-on-premise data integration as many survey respondents indicated sentiments along these lines:

“The major transactional back-office applications/systems are not going to be rewritten for the cloud any time soon. We are going to have those hunkers running for a long time. What we can expect is that for other reasons, we are going to get improved performance out of the devices. About 40 percent to 50 percent of our applications fall into that category and I’m betting they are going to stay internal. It will take more than five years for us to really hit some of these applications.
