Analysing the importance of cloud’s role in the enterprise
Aryaka, a company which offers wide area network optimisation in the cloud, has collated together several pieces of research emphasising the importance of cloud in a modern enterprise.
Pooling together studies from the likes of CIO Insight, Forrester and IDC, Aryaka has examined cloud strategies at different points of the enterprise, predominantly assessing the UK market.
Among the statistics cited in the infographic include an interesting summation of the top cloudy growth areas. According to the 1300 people surveyed, IaaS (infrastructure as a service) is predicted as the key growth area in cloud computing by 41% of respondents, followed by management and security (27%) and PaaS (platform as a service (26.6%).
This arguably goes against current wisdom that PaaS is the quickest growing (albeit still smallest) cloud market, SaaS (software as a service) – which trailed behind on 17.4% – will still increase healthily whilst IaaS will flatten out.
Last month analyst house Gartner stated its belief that service led solutions will continue to displace more traditional sourcing models through 2015.
