Across the world, organizations of all sizes from every sector are moving to cloud computing. And they need help with migration: Yet fewer than half of the organizations moving to cloud are confident in identifying which of their applications could best benefit from the technology. According to global analyst IDC, spending on public IT cloud services is expected to reach more than US$107 billion by 2017. And, according to Aragon Research, moving legacy applications to a hybrid cloud environment may be the most challenging task.
The results of Accenture’s High Performance IT research show high performers are combining private and public clouds with existing systems to enhance what each has to offer as they transition to a hybrid environment. In short, high performers aren’t waiting for new technologies to develop or mature before they act.
