1047RA CIO Insight: Growing Importance of Cloud in IT Planning – Europe Also on the March
Author: Bill McNee
Earlier this quarter, Saugatuck began publishing the results of a deep-dive interview program conducted with large-enterprise CIOs and CTOs, with a focus on gathering first-person insights into the impact that Cloud is having on IT strategy and planning. Last week, Saugatuck traveled to Europe and was able to extend this research through a series of one-on-one meetings and briefings with large-enterprise IT leaders, as well as keynoting the well-attended annual EuroCloud France conference in Paris.
This Research Alert provides some top-line insights as previously published in two premium research pieces, as well as extend the analysis with new input from this European trip. Overall, our research clearly demonstrates an accelerating pace and scope of Cloud adoption – with Cloud now fully accepted and fundamental in the plans of most of the senior IT leaders we have spoken to (globally).
