During the last two years, organizations' level of understanding of where and how cloud can be used has increased in depth and become more widespread across industry types and organization size. With the breadth and the quality of services available from cloud vendors also increasing dramatically since the peak of the cloud hype in 2009, cloud services have grown beyond their initial use for cost reduction or replacement of non-critical but opex-heavy applications, such as email and under-utilized server farms, and have broadened their applicability due to the increased availability of enterprise-class applications.
By 2015, cloud technologies and services will not exist on a discrete basis, but will be integrated into every facet of business service delivery. At that stage, IT executives will be asked to manage a hybrid environment of on-premises, outsourced, managed and cloud-sourced services. On the surface, not much difference to 2012, except that all services will be based upon virtualized, standardized and scalable platforms.
You are cordially invited to the IDC Asia/Pacific Enterprise Cloud Conference 2012, which will share with you the likely scenarios for the use of cloud technologies in 2015 and explores the essential steps in future-proofing IT infrastructure and applications.
