Cloud computing becoming core competency for 2016, says Wikibon
Cloud computing is becoming a core IT and business competency that is impacting both the ways in which companies build products and how the IT industry functions, writes Wikibon Cloud Analyst Brian Gracely. Data from the recently published “2015 Future of Cloud Computing” survey, a joint effort by Wikibon and North Bridge Venture Partners involving more than 30 technology leaders, shows that companies are shifting from private cloud strategies to hybrid and pure public cloud consumption models (see figure above).
The survey of nearly 1,000 cloud computing practitioners also showed that corporate motivation is shifting. While scalability was the most-cited reason for moving to cloud in the 2015 survey, agility has moved from fourth place to second, above cost and innovation, since the initial survey in 2011. Enterprises are also starting to adopt emerging cloud technologies, such as software-defined networking (SDN), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and database-as-a-service (DBaaS).
Security remains a major concern for corporations consuming public cloud services, along with compliance, privacy, provider lock-in and complexity. Reliability has dropped off the list of user concerns since 2011.
