Digital transformation is the need for organizations, industries and ecosystems to integrate modern technologies, processes, and competencies to create stakeholder value, accelerate innovation, and adapt to changing circumstances.
Public cloud technologies have emerged as part of the digital transformation mega trend that’s reshaping entire industries. While many organizations have invested in moving their resources into the cloud, they’re finding that it isn’t a panacea. In fact, a 2019 survey by 451 Research revealed that 9% of workloads reside on cloud-based Paas/IaaS. These numbers continue to lag significantly behind annual forecasts.
One observation is that some organizations are migrating applications and data from public cloud providers (CSP) to private, hosted or on-prem clouds.
According to IDC’s 2018 Cloud and AI Adoption Survey of IT decision-makers, 80 percent said they had migrated either applications or data from a public cloud to an on-prem or private cloud in the last year. IT leaders' concerns include the lack of control over public clouds, unforeseen costs, performance and more, driving their decision to bring resources back in house.
