Cloud’s next leap: How to create transformational business value

Thought Leadership Team

Oxford Economics

IBM’s Institute for Business Value and Oxford Economics surveyed over 7,100 C-suite executives working in enterprise cloud adoption across 29 industries and 44 countries. The study analyses diverse cloud architectures and offers action guides for companies looking to advance their cloud capabilities to the next level.

The pandemic has greatly accelerated digital transformation and, in parallel, the need for better digital infrastructures to support these changes. The journey to cloud however is not so straightforward. In fact, this study shows that around 80 per cent of stakeholders have not yet fully taken advantage of the power of the cloud. To advance in their cloud capabilities, companies need to focus on security, set a tactical approach, determine which workloads should move to the cloud, and start building out a multi-cloud architecture.
