As the corporate landscape becomes increasingly mobile, and workers collaborate across a growing range of devices, organizations are implementing an agile and secure unified communications infrastructure. Active deployment of UC technology solutions has been on the rise among enterprises; however, adoption among midsize businesses has been notably slower. Yet in seeking ways to do more with less, midsize organizations are increasingly turning to the cloud and converged networks to provide UC solutions.

This study showed that as companies adopt cloud strategies for sourcing and building IT services, they are both expecting and achieving significant gains in business key performance indicators (KPIs) including revenue growth, strategic IT budget allocation, IT costs, quicker time to provision, and increased ability to meet SLAs. Further, our study showed that as businesses increased their orientation to cloud, these KPI benefits accelerated. IDC has identified five stages of cloud maturity: ad hoc, opportunistic, repeatable, managed, and optimized (in increasing maturity), and while there are immediate benefits from moving even from ad hoc to opportunistic, the benefits accrue and grow as you move up the adoption curve. Organizations studied are realizing $1.6 million in additional revenue and $1.2 million in reduced costs per cloud application.

As organizations aim to increase business agility and streamline costs, demand for public cloud services continues to grow exponentially, with Gartner predicting it will become the majority of new IT spending by 2016. This evolving application ecosystem with its intensive performance demands is placing new pressures on traditional public cloud services. Amid this shift, Internap surveyed nearly 250 Internet infrastructure decision makers to gain insight into cloud adoption, requirements and challenges – including the differences in feedback between the cloud-wise, those using cloud services, and the cloud-wary, those with no near-term plans to use cloud services. The details of these findings are reflected in this Cloud Landscape Report.

By: Microsoft Office 365     Published Date: Sep 26, 2017
According to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Office 365 is Microsoft’s most strategic API. But to realize the potential of this business collaboration platform, Microsoft and its partners have to convince business and IT leaders that it offers levels of security, privacy, and compliance that are equal to or higher than those of their existing on-premise solutions. Even though a high percentage of enterprises are adopting cloud storage and compute within their businesses, the adoption of cloud-based content and collaboration products is by no means universal. Concerns relating to governance, risk, and compliance with regard to cloud services are understandable, but it is not unusual to find them overstated.

Cloud adoption is an expanding part of IT organizations’ strategies, and IT architects are growing more sophisticated in how they think about cloud; however, as of early 2015, relatively few organizations have truly advanced levels of cloud maturity. In IDC’s recent worldwide CloudView Survey, we discovered that nearly 60% of organizations are currently using or planning to implement some form of cloud — whether for a single project or their portfolio, for test/development environments, or to run mission-critical applications 24 x 7 — but only 25% have reached the level that IDC would call “mature”— that is, building repeatable, managed, or optimized cloud strategies. There is significant room for improvement.

Enterprises are rapidly adopting cloud computing solutions in order to meet dynamically changing business requirements. These solutions are typically comprised of both private and public cloud deployments, resulting in the creation of hybrid clouds that are designed to rapidly scale up and down in response to user demands, and they provide the advantages of elastic computing economics. In order to benefit from this environment, businesses need to connect with these hybrid clouds more easily from their heterogeneous bases, and balance the need for compliance and control against the need to rapidly innovate and the ability to scale as required. This presents a complex integration challenge for IT organizations. As a result, they increasingly find themselves brokering cloud services as opposed to creating an all-private cloud environment.

The world’s largest organizations are adopting cloudbased infrastructure and services at a dizzying pace. Software as a service (SaaS) offerings such as Salesforce.com and Microsoft Office 365 are among the more popular cloud-based services. When moving services to the cloud, data centers are no longer local, so the end user experience can suffer. A poor or congested Internet connection between the user and the cloud service will mean sluggish application delivery that puts a damper on user productivity and ultimately threatens application usage.

To respond to rapid business environmental changes, enterprises are now adopting a more agile and services-oriented model for centralized IT, often characterized as “private cloud.” Public cloud service providers have become adept at adding new customers, new applications, and more compute-intensive workloads with minimal delay. While traditional enterprise IT may not be able to fully emulate this model, they can use virtualization – both at the levels of servers and storage – to come as close to the cloud as possible. Read this Evaluator Group paper to learn how HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage platforms can be foundational to developing IT agility.
