Many organisations lack a coherent cloud strategy and underestimate private cloud costs
"Cloud computing is widely accepted as a key part of a modern IT infrastructure, but many organisations still lack a coherent cloud strategy and smaller companies in particular dramatically underestimate the cost of building a private cloud, according to a new report.
The State of Multi-Cloud Architecture report found that a large number of organisations have no coherent strategy for making the best use of cloud computing. Many already use some form of cloud service, but lack plans for making the optimum use of private and public cloud options to meet IT service requirements.
A survey of 1,368 organisations found that 57% have no multi-cloud strategy at all, while 35% have no private cloud strategy and 28% no public cloud strategy.
‘A lack of cloud strategy doesn't mean an organisation has studied and rejected the idea of the cloud; it means it has given adoption little or no thought at all,’ said Charles Crouchman, chief technology officer of VMTurbo, which commissioned the report.”
