The Futurum Group's Statement on Israel

Achieving Optimum Value from Application and Cloud Investments

The last almost two years have been incredibly complex and challenging for enterprise organizations around the world. New operating models, the rapid expansion of a remote workforce and the global disruption of the supply chain have organizations rethinking operating models. 

In response, enterprise IT organizations have rapidly deployed new technologies and accelerated digital transformation plans but many questions remain: How are organizations dealing with increasingly complex technology deployments? How have they adjusted or adapted their cloud migration plans? What type of cloud architectures are prioritized in this operational environment? Can the public cloud and pure play providers — the hyperscalers of the world — meet the current and emerging needs of enterprises today?

In mid-2021, we partnered with IBM on a study involving business, technology, and security professionals with a high level of influence and decision-making authority, responsible for planning, implementing, or overseeing their organization’s cloud, storage, compute, and application modernization programs. We wanted to know how these disruptions have impacted organizations and what changes have been made as a result. Achieving Optimum Value from Application and Cloud Investments details our findings.

In this report you’ll learn: 

  • The need for cloud application evolution
  • Why Hybrid cloud architecture is key for growth
  • What challenges and barriers are ahead for organizations
  • How to optimize cloud management for the future
  • Key takeaways from our survey that can help organizations decide what to do next

If you’re responsible for planning, implementing, or overseeing your organization’s cloud, storage, compute, and application modernization programs, this report and its companion Driving Business Value Through App Modernization, need to be on your ‘must read’ list.
