625MKT Cloud Infrastructure Research: Impact of Cloud Infrastructure Solutions on IT Planning and Management
Authors: Mark Koenig, Adam Weidenbaum
In Saugatuck’s recent executive-level survey on Cloud Computing, we questioned senior business and IT executives on the degree of impact that Cloud Infrastructure solutions are expected to have on IT planning and management. This Strategic Perspective addresses the following questions:
- Which Cloud Infrastructure Solutions will have the greatest impact?
- How does expected impact vary by company size, industry segment, and region of the world?
Overall, the results indicate that storage and retrieval solutions, for both data and documents, are expected to have the greatest impact, with batch and OLTP processing solutions expected to have the least impact. Solutions around application development and testing fell in between, in spite of the extensive discussion around them in the marketplace today.
