The Enterprise Cloud Adoption Survey is the most comprehensive tracking survey in the market. Everest Group and Cloud Connect launched the survey in 2012 to better understand and measure how and why organizations are using cloud solutions, what’s driving their adoption, the challenges they face, and what they plan do in the future.

The 2014 Enterprise Cloud Adoption Survey summary report debunks hyped-up perceptions with facts such as:

  • More than 75 percent of enterprises believe the IT role is critical for the cloud services ecosystem.

  • It's no longer a question of whether cloud is the right strategy, but rather how you will leverage the cloud's abundance of resources to outpace your competition.

The continued strong interest in private cloud versus public cloud indicates that worries about security and integration of cloud workloads with other applications still prevail among enterprise cloud users and inhibit a more general migration of workloads into the public cloud, wrote Everest Group analysts in the report, "Enterprise Cloud Adoption Survey 2013."
