NEW YORK, N.Y., Feb. 5 – TheInfoPro, a service of 451 Research, released its latest Cloud Computing Study, indicating that 47% percent of those interviewed had internal cloud projects planned for 2013. Conducted during the second half of 2012, TheInfoPro study identifies major initiatives and explores several fundamental areas, including implementation plans for more than 12 technologies, macro IT influences transforming the sector, drivers of cloud adoption, and provider-selection criteria. This annual study is based on extensive live interviews with primary decision-makers at large and midsize enterprises in North America and Europe.
Mr. ffoulkes said key trends from TheInfoPro Cloud Computing study include:
"The Digital Infrastructure of the future will provide CIOs with an assortment of service delivery venues, which will enable users to schedule or automate the delivery of workloads to the most suitable internal or external clouds depending on workload characteristics, SLAs and policy requirements,” said Peter ffoulkes, TheInfoPro's Research Director for Cloud Computing. "As IT organizations complete their infrastructure virtualization and automation projects and turn toward cloud initiatives, there will be significant upside opportunity for a veritable host of cloud service and cloud enabling technology vendors over the next two years.”
Research Director Peter ffoulkes will host a 451 Research Innovation webinar on February 14th to discuss the report’s findings.
About TheInfoPro Cloud Computing Study
TheInfoPro’s Cloud Computing Study relies on a proprietary network of IT professionals and is based on in-depth interviews with 100 information technology professionals conducted from July 2012 through October 2012. TheInfoPro’s interview methodology elicits an excellent understanding of the issues and decision-making processes related to strategic planning, technology benchmarking, and vendor selection and negotiation.
