Frost & Sullivan says Malaysian Enterprises Demonstrating Increasing Traction for Cloud Services

Posted by admin in Featured on February 26, 2011 with No Comments

A recent end-user study (Feb 2011) on Cloud Computing conducted by Frost & Sullivan reveals insights on the paradigm shift in the computing industry.

The study was conducted with 330 senior IT decision makers across  the Asia Pacific, 55 of which were from Malaysia. Here are the findings:

  • close to 30% of enterprises use some form of cloud computing
  • more than 64 percent of the survey respondents believe that Cloud Computing technology in any delivery form can help businesses reduce their infrastructure cost and lower capital expenditure investment compared to traditional IT management.
  • in terms of spending, 41 percent of respondents are likely to increase it in 2011 (no prior budget to consider cloud services earlier).
  • key concerns are still around security & privacy standards, quality of SLAs and pricing.

The research analyst indicated that,  “A growing number of enterprises in Malaysia are looking to move their applications and infrastructure into the Cloud. This is primarily being driven by their increasing awareness of the advantages of using ‘IT as a Service’ – the lower total cost of ownership, predictable costs and the ability to scale up or down depending on business needs.”

We at SKALI Cloud have contributed to that study ourselves, we have shared that most of our clients patterns and their business decision-making process, as well as their overall awareness on the benefits of adopting the cloud services. Malaysian enterprises realised that with SKALI Cloud’s offering, they now have another option to consider (instead of the traditional models).  Most understood the benefits, however they are wary of the complication of the move (new tools, new technology, new ways of doing work), and that is the reason why we are here locally in Malaysia to assist you with your cloud computing projects.

Call us, we show you how.

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.
