Enterprises Bet On Hybrid Cloud To Lower Costs: HP
Bangalore: HP released global research revealing that enterprises are accelerating cloud adoption, showing significant gains in private cloud investments and establishing hybrid delivery models that will meet their needs as organizational requirements change.
According to a new global study commissioned by HP, by 2016, 77 percent of enterprise IT delivery is expected to be cloud-based in Asia Pacific, with 38 percent as private cloud, 22 percent as managed cloud (private cloud managed by someone else) and 17 percent as public cloud. Traditional IT will remain a key delivery model accounting for 24 percent.
Rapid adoption rates in Asia Pacific are driven by respondents’ expectations that cloud will lower costs (59 percent), drive agility (58 percent) and improve customer/citizen service (62 percent). However, while the respondents expect these benefits, nearly half of organizations (46 percent) admit that they are not running any return on investment analysis for their cloud initiatives. For those organizations that do have some form of measurement, 13 percent say they only use “time to delivery” metrics, while 10 percent measure their cloud implementations by calculating the cost benefits.
The study indicated that as budgets continue to be funneled to cloud technology, enterprises want open architectures that span private, public, managed and traditional delivery models. In fact, 59 percent of respondents in Asia Pacific believe that cloud computing should evolve to an open platform.
