THE CLOUD IMPACT AND ADOPTION
PREDICTIONS FOR TODAY AND TOMORROW - 2012
How cloud adoption impacts enterprise software vendors
Cloud barriers are dropping vendors are stepping up to address security, performance, compliance and integration concerns.
Biggest barriers in adoption of cloud service
Eager to adopt cloud services and reap their benefits but hindered by their security concerns, IT buyers have been putting more on cloud providers to offer more secure cloud environments
Private cloud with on premise or hybrid integration is the relevant adoption path for enterprise
Cloud Barrier: any obstacle or persived problems that prohibit cloud adoption by a company, such as lack of security, support and control, regulatory, difficulty meeting CRA.
Capex to Opex, Capex vs Opex: Refers to economic difference between cloud and a premise computing. Premise require capital expenditure while cloud requires pay as you go operating service.
Hype is over serious adoption begins.
Cost Savings [Capex to Opex) gives way to business agility, time—to—value and overall efficiency as primary adoption drivers.
Security and penetration tests emerge as a requirement of cloud implementations.
By 2016, 40 percent of enterprises will make proof of about what kind of internal independent security testing a precondition for using any type of cloud service.

Enterprises looking for alternatives to on-premise deployments—but must maintain control over SLAs for their high-value customers—turn to private clouds for B2B interaction management and governance
Strong adaption of mobile devices (phones and tablets) drive enterprise to think about what kind of internal application to mobilize
Mobile is king (smart phones, tablets,etc). Enterprise app stores and marketplaces replace traditional application deployment and maintenance processes, making it easier for employees and customers to consume services within and outside company walls.
“Mobile device spending will exceed PC spending, growing 4x as fast.”
2012 will be the first year in which spending from these devices ($277 billion) exceeds that for PCs ($257 billion), growing at 23% almost 5 times PC spending growth.
Enterprise buyers force industry to adopt SLA standards.

Cloud is the primary operating model for enterprise IT organizations
Enterprise IT-departments become service management organizations responsible for managing on-premise, private cloud, and public cloud services. Business drives more technology decisions and IT is more involved with the business.
Enterprises demand ?exible SaaS licensing models, regardless of where software is deployed, changing the face of enterprise software license models forever.
Survey data from the past few years show the steady decline of traditional software licensing spending compared with more flexible business models, such as subscription, pay per use option and licensing
Economies of scale and cloud security assurances drive enterprises to adopt public cloud services
Cloud complexity is the main issue reported by enterprises, driving better cloud security assurances management tools to be created and used.
The flexibility and choice that in a great benefit of cloud leads to a significant increase in the wiser of vendor relationships and services to be managed across hybrid environments. Management of vendor services. SI.A's. billing etc become a complex problem for enterprise It who are now service managers not just providers.
The issue drivers the adoption of cloud brokers to act as intermediate and solve issues of integration, management and service aggregation
