Organizational Culture is Less of a Barrier for Private Cloud Implementation, Says Survey by Platform Computing

TORONTO July 26, 2011

IDC report

over the last few years

  • The number of companies planning to deploy private cloud has grown from 28 percent in previous years to one-third
  • Organizational culture has been reduced as a barrier for adoption by 10 percent year-over-year
  • Concerns about security have remained roughly the same, rising from 26 to 29 percent in the last year as executives more seriously consider the impact of cloud deployment
  • Executives are less worried about the complexity of managing a private cloud (reduced from 25 percent to 19 percent),which indicates an increased familiarity with cloud solutions for business
  • Application software licensing remains less of a consideration, with a minimal increase from 12 percent to 14 percent

In line with these findings, motivation for establishing a private cloud has also changed:

  • ‘Improving resource utilization’ is considered the key reason for deploying private cloud by almost one-third of respondents (31 percent)
  • ‘Experimenting with cloud’ has become a much bigger driver over the last year with 30 percent of executives ranking it as the biggest motivator for implementation compared to only 19 and 17 percent in 2010 and 2009, respectively
  • ‘Cost cutting’ remains an important consideration as organizations continue to monitor spend in the wake of the economic downturn. Almost a quarter of executives questioned (24 percent) rated this as the biggest influencer compared to 25 percent in 2010 and 17 percent in 2009
  • ‘Resource scalability’ has become less crucial over the past year with only 7 percent of executives selecting this as a primary driver compared to 17 and 18 percent in 2010 and 2009, respectively
  • Similarly, ‘improving IT responsiveness’ remains of minimal importance with less than 10 percent consistently selecting it as their primary driver for private cloud deployment in HPC
