Within four years, the cloud could be the dominant platform for It and business architecture – that’s according to a recent report from Saugatuck Technology Inc. In their latest Global Cloud Business Software Survey Data Report , the company claims that th4e move to adopt cloud technology is accelerating rapidly and so we may be looking at a complete sea change in terms how IT Leaders work.
The report says that rather than investing in new on premise systems, organisations will move to a hybrid solution and that most of that hybrid solution ill then shift towards total cloud/SaaS services within the next few years.
However , it also accepts that larger organisations will be slower to move financial applications such as those used for budgeting and reporting & planning to public and private clouds.
So what do you think your company’s IT infrastructure look like in four years time? Will you still be operating purely on premise systems for your accounting or will the majority of your applications be in online?
