Breaking through the Cloud Adoption Barriers
The rapid growth of cloud brings many challenges and opportunities for cloud providers who need to re-evaluate their existing business models and ensure that their service offerings meet the demands of customers in an environment where cost, security and control remain top of mind for both users and providers of cloud services.
The Cloud Takes Shape
Cloud has finally started to move beyond the hype and into the fundamental fabric of today’s enterprise. As a result, organizations around the world are now gaining valuable insight, not only into the potential benefits of cloud, but also the practical challenges of adopting these evolutionary and highly disruptive technologies.
Digital Debate: The rise of the digital multi-tasker
Consumers have an insatiable appetite for media in all its forms, whether digital or offline, according to the 2013 Digital Debate, KPMG’s global survey of over 9,000 people. The report highlights a new breed of urban consumer that is gaining its first media experiences via smartphones and tablets, and has a strong preference for online content.
A global study of the business adoption of Cloud
This survey shows an increased readiness to accept and exploit the benefits of Cloud. Most agree that Cloud offers strategic benefits, and these look likely to transform business models to offer serious competitive advantage. The vast majority of executives surveyed expect investment in 2012 to dramatically increase, with some organisations planning to spend more than a fifth of their IT budget on Cloud next year.
