Enterprises are moving away from monolithic packages and massive implementation cycles towards shorter agile implementations, made possible by the cloud. Many enterprises are moving to the cloud to transform their applications, optimize their business processes, and make themselves infrastructure independent with a comprehensive suite of services. Shifting applications to the cloud is a strategic way through which enterprises aspire to not only improve agility but also enable digital transformation.
To better understand the experience of application cloud transformation, Infosys surveyed enterprises across the United States, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand and solicited views from 853 executives from organizations with over US$1 billion in revenue and across 12 industries.
The study aimed to get a comprehensive view, both from strategic and implementation angles:
- The strategic viewpoint included enterprises’ need to move their applications to the cloud, expectations, concerns, and expected outcomes
- The implementation viewpoint included insights on the overall experience, challenges faced, methods adopted, and extent of adoption
Enterprise applications are a critical part of business. This report provides information and insights from our respondents on their idea of moving applications to the cloud.
