The state of IT: CIOs targeting hybrid cloud and packaged services

From TechRepublic

"Last week, EMC and VMware released a joint report titled The State of IT Transformation, examining the IT strategies of 660 global customers. The report focused on IT initiatives in hybrid cloud, standardised services and proper documentation.

Hybrid cloud was a top priority for respondents with more than 90% evaluating or testing proof of concept for a hybrid cloud deployment. Still, most hybrid cloud approaches are in the early stages and the evaluations lack formality, with 91% of respondents lacking an organised method to evaluate hybrid cloud. Additionally, only 3% had evaluated their applications to see if they would work well in a hybrid cloud environment.

The concept of hybrid cloud, or a mix of on-premises solutions with public and private cloud services, has been seeing tremendous growth in the enterprise. In late 2015, research firm MarketsandMarkets‎ pegged hybrid cloud growth at a compound rate of 27%, putting its growth above the IT market as a whole.
