The Cloud is Now Mainstream

This was my favorite observation in Judy Ko’s “Learnings And Surprises From Informatica World.”  As readers of this blog know, Informatica recently hosted our annual user conference and the topic of cloud computing and the importance of the right data integration strategy to cloud success was front and center. Here is what Judy observed as it relates to cloud computing:

“Cloud is now mainstream (whether you like it or not.)  This one was funny.  Different people and companies fell along a wide spectrum.  At one end, there were a good number of IT folks who said their company did not use the cloud at all, often due to security and governance concerns.  (I suspect that in many cases, the business is using some cloud applications—but IT may not know it yet.)  And those IT folks thought that cloud was just not “real” yet.  Then there were a good chunk of folks in the middle.  They were IT folks who were dealing with “SaaS sprawl”—the fact that the business had gone out and started using a bunch of different cloud/software-as-a-service applications, and IT was now trying to get control of the mess.  In these cases, the sprawl was yet another source of data fragmentation in the enterprise.”
