The 2012 Future of Cloud Computing Survey Results @mjskok

A colleague of mine just sent me the 2012 Future of Cloud Computing Survey results from the venture capital firm North Bridge.  There were 785 survey respondents, which included a mix of line of business, CXO, IT and other. 65% of of the respondents were vendors and 35% were customers, which may skew the results to cloud, but the results are aligned with research from IDC, Gartner and other industry analyst firms.

A few of the results that my colleague highlighted as noteworthy (and I agree) are:

  1. 75% of SW will be developed using PaaS in 2017
  2. Confidence in Cloud for mission critical up from 13% in their 2011 survey to 50% in their 2012 survey
  3. Consistent with IDC’s forecast, around 85% of all new SW will be delivered via Cloud (SaaS)
  4. 55% of CIOs will increase spending in SaaS in 2012
  5. Only 3% of respondents view Cloud as too risky (10% last year)
  6. Venture investment in Cloud grew by 50% 2010-2011 to $2.4B

Do you agree with the results? Any naysayers still out there? With quotes from SAP included in the presentation, clearly hybrid is the new black

Great job Michael J Skok for putting together a very nice presentation of your data. I’d have embedded it here, but it doesn’t seem to be enabled for the presentation in Slideshare.
