IaaS Adoption Trends and Customer Experience 2015

June, 2015


Public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) is growing in popularity. It is being used for disaster recovery, system development, testing, and even production systems. This report quantifies the current adoption and investment trends, as well as the benefits driving adoption and the buyer concerns holding it back. We assess adoption and investment trends by organization size, sector, and geography. To assess the economics, we look at the return on investment and total cost of ownership experience of those that have adopted IaaS along with current investment per user. We conclude with practical advice for IT leaders seeking to gain support for IaaS investment. (24 pp., 12 fig.)
