Survey: Companies using cloud enjoy greater revenue
A new survey has revealed that companies that are savvy with cloud computing can earn greater revenue and more business growth.
The study, by CloudHealth Technologies, surveyed 388 senior enterprise decision-makers, to determine how they were faring with a range of operational metrics. Respondents that showed the best results were designated ‘cloud leaders’.
It found that these cloud leaders executing a plan see far superior results than companies lacking the knowledge. The survey found that those cloud-savvy firms can grow their revenues 2.3 times faster and are generating an average 35 per cent year-on-year increase in top-line revenue.
It also found that they are faster, more agile and 2.3 times more likely to see the cloud drive competitive advantage. Cloud leaders are also four times more likely to roll out new applications and services quickly and more than twice as likely to be “somewhat or extremely efficient” in delivering applications and services (99 per cent compared to 41 per cent). Melodye Mueller, vice-president of marketing and strategic alliances at CloudHealth Technologies, said: “That the cloud has redefined business is undeniable. The question has now become: How do you unlock its maximum potential?
“Even top cloud users wonder where they stand in terms of their cloud operations' best practices. They want to know which strategies yield optimal results and how they are doing against their peers.”
The survey found that cloud leaders are ten times more likely to have a “crystal-clear vision of how to achieve their vision of cloud deployment” and twice as likely to have centralised governance for migrating workloads to the cloud.
It was also revealed that cloud leaders’ infrastructures are made up, on average, of 71 per cent public cloud, 23 per cent private and six per cent data centre.
