Survey: On-premise vs. Cloud

Survey: On-premise vs. Cloud

Posted by admin in Featured on January 15, 2011 with No Comments

There was an interesting survey done by itracks (a leading online market research company), that was sponsored by Appirio (a cloud management company).

The survey mainly wanted to understand the early cloud adopter, the first mover to the cloud, to understand their experiences. The survey was carried out with IT decision makers at 150+ mid-to-large sized North American companies (all with >500 employees, 65% with over 1000 employees) as respondents who had already adopted at least one leading SaaS or cloud application.

The result is very interesting.

  • It’s no doubt, moving to cloud with a higher TCO — 65% says it’s somewhat/significantly better.
  • Security? very hot topic on public cloud. The survey shows  53% respondents says it’s somewhat/significantly better. Many cited that it is the most common misperception.
  • Other significant points are on vendor lock-in, easy of deployment, and availability. Which really favours cloud services.

Overall, the survey revealed, moving to the cloud, benefits these adopters. You can download the full survey here.
