“The cloud is here to stay.”
So what – everybody knows that. But what you might not know is that the cloud is surprisingly “sticky” – once in, companies only grow their cloud footprints and move more applications and workloads from on-premises to public clouds.
In a recent survey we commissioned, we found that while it might have taken a company six to twelve months to complete their first cloud project, a majority of them have gone on to second and third projects (and more), each deployment taking less time than the last. We didn’t find anyone who had “tried the cloud” but then gone back on-premises. Once they’re in the cloud, they stay there.Once you go cloud, you stay cloud – businesses are migrating multiple applications and workloads to public cloudsClick To Tweet
We gained some great insights from our survey results, which we will be sharing soon.
If you would like to learn more about how our survey respondents are leveraging the public cloud, register for our upcoming webinar, Public Cloud Adoption Goes Mainstream. The webinar takes place on Wednesday, May 18, 2016, from 1:00-2:00pm EDT. We will discuss topics such as,
- How are companies leveraging the cloud?
- What kinds of companies are moving to the cloud, and at what rate?
- What defines “mainstream?”
- What returns on investments are companies seeing?
We will also present key takeaways that can help you accelerate your own cloud initiatives.
The webinar is free, and you'll gain some valuable insights that will help you refine your own cloud strategy.
