4 Executive Summary THE WAVE 6 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY: THE ROAD TO HYBRID CLOUD IS PRIVATE From the project perspective, enterprise IT organizations are increasingly focusing on the transformation to cloud computing in one form or another as being the IT delivery model of the future. A quarter or more of respondents are engaged in pure cloud-oriented projects, with internal private cloud projects leading the pack at 3. Security continues to be the paramount pain point, cited by 3 of respondents, up from 30% in the previous survey. This is consistent with increased public awareness from the Edward Snowden events and other highly publicized hacking/security lapses throughout the year, all of which strengthen the risks and headwinds toward increased public cloud adoption. More than two-thirds (7) of respondents are being held back by non-it roadblocks, which is more than three times the percentage facing IT-related roadblocks. The percentage of respondents citing buy-in/resistance to change as a roadblock increased to 2 from 1 in the previous survey. The transition from traditional IT architectures to a cloud-based future will be executed over multiple years. Respondents indicated that 6 of IT services were currently implemented on traditional on-premises, noncloud digital infrastructure. On-premises, private cloud accounted for 19% of IT services. Two years from now the landscape will have changed considerably, but not substantially for off-premises cloud providers. On-premises, Internal private cloud projects lead the pack at 3. Security is the primary pain point. Over two-thirds (7) are being held back by non-it roadblocks. Growing from 10% to between 2013 and 2015, hybrid cloud is becoming the dominant cloud deployment model. For the majority of workloads, private cloud is the preferred option in the next two years, followed closely by hybrid cloud. Two technologies are critical for success: cloud platforms and cloud performance management and monitoring. From the provider perspective, the most frequent mentions are for VMware, Microsoft and Amazon Web Services. From the exciting provider perspective, Amazon Web Services still holds the lead in a close heat with VMware and OpenStack. As large organizations become sophisticated in cloud, the costs and risks of going external may balance the benefits of outsourcing to a public cloud provider. private cloud implementations will have grown by 11 percentage points to 30% of IT services. Hybrid cloud looks like the game changer, with adoption growing from 10% to between 2013 and 2015, and is showing signs of becoming the dominant cloud deployment model over time. When looking at the preferred workload deployment venues in the next two years, private cloud is the preferred option for the majority of workload types, followed closely by hybrid cloud deployments. Collaborative and cloud-native applications stand out as the largest opportunity for public cloud service providers.
5 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY, THE WAVE 6 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY As enterprises move toward private cloud implementations, we are seeing trends in technology adoption emerge. Leading the pack for first-time deployment in the next two years and beyond are two technologies critical for successful cloud implementations: cloud platforms at 3 and cloud performance management and monitoring at 3. The cloud computing market is evolving rapidly, and it s clear that a greater diversity of cloud service provider types will proliferate, each eventually finding their place and share of the opportunity. For cloud infrastructure (XaaS) service providers, online service providers such as Amazon, Microsoft and others are in use to some extent by 6 of respondents currently, and this is expected to rise to 9 two years from now. Telecommunications providers rate second in adoption at 40%, growing to 5 in two years. Hosting providers and datacenter operators share the action with 3 and 2 adoption respectively, rising to 4 and 30% two years from now. As the adoption of public cloud services grows, it becomes increasingly important for cloud service providers to understand how they are being assessed. Current evaluation methods are more subjective than scientific in nature. As large organizations become more sophisticated and efficient in their internal cloud deployments with the economies of scale that are available to them, the costs and risks of going external may balance the benefits of outsourcing to a public cloud provider.
6 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY Cloud Computing Outlook BUDGETS There are many definitions of cloud computing, but perhaps the most encompassing is based on the delivery of IT as a service. From the budget perspective, enterprise IT organizations are increasingly focusing on the transformation to cloud computing in one form or another as being the IT delivery model of the future. IT organizations need to navigate one of the largest industry transformations that has occurred in the past 30 years, which was originally fomented by the introduction of the IBM PC and created the market in which distributed computing models prospered. Taking its first tentative steps in the guise of client-server computing and flirting with the concepts of grid computing and application service providers, the industry has almost come full circle with a twist to a clientservice model. In comparison to our previous survey six months earlier wherein 3 of respondents cited separate budgets for cloud computing initiatives, that number had shrunk to just of respondents in the Wave 6 Cloud Computing Study, with 7 including cloud computing projects as part of normal IT spending. For the smaller group with separate cloud budgets, spending has also shifted, indicating a less irregular distribution. The minimum budget has increased from $25,000 to $100,000, and the maximum shrank from $125m to $75m. Median and mean levels of spending have also begun to coalesce, with the median rising from $675,000 to $1m, and the mean dropping from $8.2m to $4.7m, further showing a normalization of cloud computing budget trends.

7 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY OUTLOOK 7 Further in support of the thesis that spending on cloud computing is normalizing while steadily increasing, those respondents who have separate cloud budgets are showing consistency for future spending plans across our surveys. In the previous survey, 69% planned increased spending in While this has now risen to 7, those planning reduced spending are about the same as previously, at 1, the difference being made up of those expecting to remain flat. COMMENTATOR QUOTES Don t know costs it s a POC at this point. Not very much in the five figures, not six figures. In 2012, we looked at stuff; in 2013, we re buying licenses several thousand percent more in In 2014, it depends how the POCs go. It will be between two and five times higher.

8 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY OUTLOOK 8 PROJECTS From the project perspective, the transformation of IT to a client-service model is notable. While projects that support this transformation come in various forms, a quarter or more of respondents are engaged in pure cloudoriented projects, with internal private cloud projects leading the pack at 3. During this survey there has been a pull-back on public cloud activity vs. the previous survey. While these projects still outweigh traditional IT or cloudreadiness projects at a similar level, there has been a small but noticeable shift in activity toward private vs. public cloud project activity. COMMENTATOR QUOTES We haven t even started. Over the next six months we will start our implementation of our first dive into it [cloud]. Primarily infrastructure as a service for private cloud. We ll see how it fits and then over the next months we ll look at using private cloud as production mechanism for deploying servers, applications, etc. LE, Energy/Utilities Just built an internal private cloud still rolling this out to various parts of the company.

9 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY OUTLOOK 9 PAIN POINTS Security continues to be the paramount pain point, cited by 3 of respondents, up from 30% in the previous survey. This is consistent with increased public awareness from the Edward Snowden events and other highly publicized hacking/security lapses throughout the year, all of which strengthen the risks and headwinds toward increased public cloud adoption. While there are many other pain points cited, most are decreasing as familiarity with cloud deployment models increases. The exceptions that are worth noting are compliance and contractual issues.

10 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY OUTLOOK 10 ROADBLOCKS Confirming our results from prior surveys, over twothirds (7) are being held back by non-it roadblocks, which is more than three times the percentage facing IT-related roadblocks. The percentage of respondents citing buy-in/resistance to change as a roadblock increased to 2 from 1 in the previous survey. COMMENTATOR QUOTES Cost is number one. They claim it reduces cost and TCO, but it doesn t, because we run stuff five and six years. Integration we ve been trying to move into hybrid O365 and Exchange and have had some cost concerns and integration issues. Have had some issues around ID and SSO as well. LE, Consumer Goods/Retail For external, it goes back to the criticality of the business process, the ability to secure the data, and the maturity of the vendors. How much risk are you willing to take on? LE, Healthcare/Pharmaceuticals Mindset and cultural shift are key. We bump into standards for security and data security that can be inhibiting.

11 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY 11 Deployment Method Choices USAGE OF DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE AND CLOUD TECHNOLOGIES AND SERVICES Despite the hype in the marketplace, the transition from traditional IT architectures to a cloud-based future is a slow and stately dance that will be executed over multiple years, as has been indicated over our past several surveys. Respondents indicated that 6 of IT services were currently implemented on traditional on-premises, non-cloud digital infrastructure. On-premises, private cloud accounted for 19% of IT services, with 1 being delivered by traditional off-premises outsourcing services. In this study we asked explicitly about hybrid cloud, which may become the eventual deployment model for most organizations, but only 10% claim to be exploiting some instantiation of the methodology currently, although expect to be doing so by A mere of IT services are currently being delivered by off-premises SaaS and XaaS offerings. Precise terminology is an extremely important aid to understanding, and the cloud computing environment is overflowing with jargon words for which there are multiple competing interpretations. Hybrid cloud is one of most frequently discussed concepts and one that also has a very large number of definitions, many of which are promoted by vendors in a self-serving manner. 451 Research defines hybrid cloud as a delivery model that consists of two or more distinct cloud infrastructures that remain unique entities, all coordinated by standardized or proprietary technology, and interoperate to deliver seamless business functions. Two years from now the landscape will have changed considerably, but not substantially for off-premises cloud providers. Non-cloud, on-premises IT services will have experienced a decline of more than 20 percentage points to just 4 of IT service delivery, while on-premises, private cloud implementations will have grown by 11 percentage points to 30% of IT services. Hybrid cloud looks like the game changer, with adoption growing from 10% to between 2013 and 2015, and is showing signs of becoming the dominant cloud deployment model over time.
12 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY DEPLOYMENT METHODS 12 Usage of Digital Infrastructure and Cloud Technologies and Services For each of the major digital infrastructure deployment methods below, how are your IT services (percentage of applications/workloads delivered) distributed today? For these same deployment methods, what do you expect this distribution to be two years from now? Hybrid Cloud (2H 13), 2013=115; 2015, n=113; All Other Data Points (1H 13), n=88.

Traditional off-premises outsourcing services remain steady, growing from 1 to All Other 1. Data Off-premises Points (1H 13), n=88. public cloud services, SaaS and XaaS, see notable increases to 9% and of IT services respectively, but these are not the kind of wholesale changes that alter the fortunes of established companies materially. Q. For each of the major digital infrastructure deployment methods below, how are your IT services (percentage of applications/workloads delivered) distributed today? For these same deployment methods, what do you expect this distribution to be two years from now? Hybrid Cloud (2H 13), 2013=115;2015, n=113; The primary takeaway is that the move to cloud computing is continuing with considerable momentum in the fashion of a deep ocean current, and the effects will likely take half a decade or more to unfold. COMMENTATOR QUOTES Ninety percent (90%) of the policy writing and claims environment is through hybrid, but that s 70% overall. We shouldn t have much change in that number in the next two years either. MSE, Financial Services Amazon will not likely be in use in two years, and if so, for burst deployment only. LE, Education We see internal infrastructure expanding into that hybrid model. LE, Financial Services
13 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY DEPLOYMENT METHODS 13 PRIMARY DEPLOYMENT METHOD AND REASONS FOR PLACING WORKLOADS IN THE CLOUD IN THE NEXT TWO YEARS Respondents were asked about their preferred deployment methods for a number of workload categories in the next two years, selecting from internal private cloud, hybrid cloud, external public cloud and SaaS, and the reasons for those choices. When looking at the preferred workload deployment venues in the next two years, private cloud is the preferred option for the majority of workload types, followed closely by hybrid cloud deployments. Collaborative and cloudnative applications stand out as the largest opportunity for public cloud service providers. Best Workload Execution Venue by Cloud Type For each of the following categories of workload/business functions, what is your primary deployment method likely to be in the next two years (internal private cloud, external public cloud, hybrid cloud, or SaaS)? n = 28 to 53.

15 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY 15 Public Cloud Provider Adoption As the cloud computing market evolves, it is clear that a greater diversity of cloud service provider types will proliferate, each eventually finding their place and share of the opportunity. The cloud marketplace is too immature to reliably measure which categories of providers will create and achieve a sustainable share of the market from a capacity or revenue perspective, but we are able to gauge future potential by exploring the current and future rates of adoption of differing provider types. External Public Cloud Provider Adoption for Infrastructure Services by Provider Type n=118.

Telecommunications providers rate second in adoption at 40%, growing to 5 in two years. Hosting providers and datacenter operators share the action with 3 and 2 adoption respectively, rising to 4 and 30% two years from now. In the growing cloud service market, there is opportunity for other categories of providers, with the strongest growth potential for ISaaS providers, starting with just current adoption and expected adoption growing to two years from now.

Over the next two years, respondents expect adoption of SaaS from online service providers to grow from a current 3 to 40%, for ISaaS providers from 1 to 20% and for ISVs from 1 to 20%. The market for cloud services is expected to grow substantially in the coming years, creating substantial opportunity for and competition between vendors of all types. While established vendors such as Microsoft, Amazon Web Services and salesforce.com are expected to continue prospering, a plethora of other well-known companies are expected to grab a piece of the pie including AT&T, Verizon, ServiceNow, Google, IBM, CenturyLink, HP, Rackspace and many others.

18 CLOUD COMPUTING STUDY 18 Technology Roadmap ADOPTION PLANS As enterprises move beyond server virtualization to on-premises, private cloud implementations, we are beginning to see some trends in technology adoption emerge. As might be expected as we move into the era of the softwaredefined datacenter, automated server provisioning is widely adopted, and leads the pack for in-use technologies at 4, with planning first-time deployments and just 29% having no plans at this time. Leading the pack for first-time deployment in the next two years and beyond are two technologies critical for successful cloud implementations, cloud platforms at 3 and cloud performance management and monitoring at 3. Both of these technologies place second equal for current adoption at 3, with just 2 and 3 having no plans. From the greenfield upside opportunity perspective, metering and billing comes in third place at 2, with just 2 of respondents citing current use. Given the early stages of cloud technology adoption, for most situations the future opportunity is greater than the significance of in-use technologies. While the data in the cloud computing technology roadmap chart below is identical in structure to our more regular format, it has been simplified and prioritized to highlight the greenfield opportunity for first time use of a technology in the next two years and beyond, followed by in-use adoption and finally to indicate where no plans for deployment exist.
