1 Research Report Abstract: Cloud Computing Adoption Trends: Software- and Infrastructure-as-a-Service Usage Among Enterprise and Midmarket Organizations By Bill Lundell With John McKnight and Jennifer Gahm May Enterprise Strategy Group, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

2 Introduction Research Objectives Research Report: Cloud Computing Adoption Trends In order to assess IT spending priorities over 2011 and beyond, ESG recently surveyed 611 North American and Western European senior IT professionals representing midmarket (100 to 999 employees) and enterprise-class (1,000 employees or more) organizations. All respondents were personally responsible for or familiar with their organizations 2010 IT spending as well as their 2011 IT budget and spending plans at either an entire organization level or at a business unit/division/branch level. A subset of ESG s questions in this survey focused on respondents usage of and plans for public cloud computing services. Specifically, the survey asked the following questions with respect to cloud computing services: 2 What impact will public cloud computing services have on organizations traditional IT infrastructure and processes over the next five years? Among organizations that believe public cloud computing will have little or no impact on their IT strategies, what are these customers leading objections or concerns? How does cloud computing sentiment vary by organization size, IT budget, and other variables? What are the usage trends for SaaS (software-as-a-service), and how do they vary by organization size? What types of applications are being delivered via the SaaS model? What percentage of organizations current applications is delivered via a SaaS model? How will this change over time? Who are the primary internal advocates for the usage of SaaS? What are the usage trends for IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service), and how do they vary by company size and the scope of on-site IT infrastructure? What portion of 2011 IT budgets will organizations earmark for spending on SaaS and/or IaaS services? Survey participants represented a wide range of industries including manufacturing, financial services, communications and media, health care, retail, government, and business services. For more details, please see the Research Methodology and Respondent Demographics sections of this report. 2 Note: Cloud computing questions in this survey focused on software-as-a-service (or SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings. So-called platform-as-a-service (PaaS) offerings are beyond the scope of this particular study.

3 Research Methodology To gather data for this report, ESG conducted a comprehensive online survey of IT managers from private- and public-sector organizations in North America (United States and Canada) and Western Europe (United Kingdom, France, and Germany) between November 17, 2010 and December 1, To qualify for this survey, respondents were required to be senior IT managers personally responsible for or familiar with their organization s overall 2011 IT budget and spending plans, either at an entire organization level or at a business unit/division/branch level. Respondents who were only responsible for IT spending at a departmental or workgroup level were disqualified. All respondents were provided an incentive to complete the survey in the form of cash awards and/or cash equivalents. After filtering out unqualified respondents, removing duplicate responses, and screening the remaining completed responses (on a number of criteria) for data integrity, we were left with a final total sample of 611 IT managers. Please see the Respondent Demographics section of this report for more information on these respondents. Note: Totals in figures and tables throughout this report may not add up to 10 due to rounding.
