When a SaaS startup moves to the scale-up phase, a shift often happens.Suddenly, security shoots up on the ever-growing list of business priorities and with good reason.As a business scales, it needs to manage more customers and more data than ever before. And if the business is aiming to attract larger clients, these clients will no doubt have greater security concerns and stricter standards to be accommodated.Of course, there’s also the reality that once your SaaS business reaches the scale-up phase, it’s likely your team has put a lot of time and effort into establishing the business’s place in the market.
Microsoft currently features old-school solutions that are growing relatively slowly (Office and Windows) and new cloud solutions that are growing tremendously (Dynamics 365 and Azure). If the company stays in its current form, Microsoft stock will keep steadily advancing. But because the company’s total top and bottom lines are never going to increase much more than 30% or 35% per year, the shares are never going to deliver truly huge returns. But that would change if the company was to spin off its rapidly growing cloud businesses. In such a scenario, the current owners of Microsoft stock would receive shares in a cutting edge cloud services company (let’s call it Azure), and shares in a company focused on providing old, mostly PC-based software to businesses and consumers.
Cloud computing is firmly established as the new normal for enterprise IT. Across industries such as manufacturing and automotive, cloud continues to be one of the fastest-growing segments of IT spend. With greater spend, however, comes greater responsibility for CIOs to invest budgets wisely, and a bigger impact if things go wrong.CIOs looking to prepare their organisation to succeed in the upcoming turns must take a differentiated approach to cloud computing. It will be essential for CIOs to develop a formal strategy that helps to put individual cloud decisions in the context of the enterprise’s strategic goals.
On average, organizations currently have 45% of IT infrastructure running in the public cloud, but that number is expected to increase to 76% in the next five years.Overall, the study indicates that while adoption rates for public cloud continue to grow, security is still the number one roadblock. 75% of respondents have already been targeted by a cyber-attack. Security concerns include the security of public cloud infrastructure, the impact of cyber-attacks, and the security of applications deployed in public cloud.Integrations/network is the No. 2 concern with public cloud adoption. These concerns include integrating public cloud with legacy technologies, better integration with private cloud, and enhanced integration with on-premises infrastructure.
