The Impact of Cloud Shift on IT Markets

January 31, 2019 / DQINDIA ONLINE

Through 2022, growth in enterprise IT spending for cloud-based offerings will be faster than growth in traditional (non-cloud) IT offerings, making cloud computing one of the most disruptive forces in IT markets since the early days of the digital age.When organizations are faced with IT spending decisions, the consideration of using cloud services for new initiatives or replacing existing systems causes a shift in spending from traditional IT solutions to cloud. This results in an effect we call cloud shift, and it is happening more often due to a “cloud-first” preference most organizations take when making IT spending decisions. This cloud-first orientation increases the rate of cloud adoption and, consequently, cloud shift. The rate of cloud shift varies slightly based on the dynamics of each market segment.
