VMware: The State of the Cloud – IT Decentralization and What It Means for Business

VMware has unveiled today key findings from a recent cloud study on IT management, the decentralization of IT, and the challenges and opportunities that decentralization presents.

The study, conducted by Vanson Bourne, took a deeper dive into a recent VMware-sponsored survey by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU). Results of the Vanson Bourne survey reveal that 69 percent of respondents believe IT management has become increasingly decentralized over the past three years, and 57 percent agree that this decentralization has led to IT teams purchasing solutions that aren’t entirely secure. This disruption isn’t all bad, though. And as businesses leverage technology for efficiency and growth, a key factor to this digital transformation is cloud computing.

According to Raghu Raghuram, chief operating officer, Cloud Services and Products, VMware, “These survey results reflect that cloud computing is continuing to move technology beyond IT, giving lines of business easy-to-use, flexible IT services to drive innovation within their domains.”
