More cloud, more business value

MORE THAN 80% OF SURVEY RESPONDENTS IN APAC REPORT THREE OR MORE BUSINESS BENEFITS FROM PUBLIC CLOUD DEPLOYMENTS.

GAINING VALUE THROUGH HEAVY CLOUD ADOPTION

The cloud has created huge opportunities for APAC businesses, which cite faster time to market, reduced costs and an increased ability to be innovative and competitive among their top gains from cloud computing.

A global survey, conducted by IDG Research and sponsored by Accenture, showed that heavy adopters of public cloud report multiple quantifiable benefits.

Additionally, data security, once a substantial barrier to adoption, today ranks among the top drivers for cloud migration. Nearly three in four APAC businesses trust that cloud-based data is secure.

APAC CLOUD ADOPTERS ARE
WINNING ON MULTIPLE FRONTS

At least half the APAC businesses surveyed benefit on multiple fronts – from increased operational efficiency, lower storage costs and less time spent on maintenance, to better utilization and monetization of data.

51%

DRIVERS FOR HIGH ADOPTION

More than half cite more rigorous data security as among their top three drivers for cloud migration.

Drivers for both large and small enterprises include reduced costs and faster time to market. Enterprises with more than 100,000 employees also cite on demand scalability.

JOURNEY TO THE CLOUD

While cloud computing delivers quantifiable benefits, APAC business face challenges in areas including gaining visibility into public cloud operations, costs, performance and return on investment.

Despite higher confidence in data security, integrating on-premises security environments remains a challenge for 56% of APAC businesses.

More than 60% of APAC cloud adopters are turning to ecosystem partners for skills critical to successful Cloud deployment.
