​Enterprise investment drives “as a Service” shift to hybrid cloud

“Professional services adoption goes hand in hand with increasingly complicated hybrid IT implementations.”

The market for enterprise-grade cloud solutions is maturing with enterprise end user investment driving substantial growth in private and hybrid cloud adoption.

Technology Business Research findings claim that during 2015, cloud professional services was “by far the most” utilised cloud service among enterprise respondents as organisations planned for continued value-added, à la carte cloud adoption.

As such, this proliferation of professional services adoption led to a spike in “as a Service” cloud workload adoption.

“Hybrid cloud adoption has more than doubled since 2013 and will continue to accelerate as enterprises solve integration issues associated with growing ‘as a Service’ adoption,” says Kelsey Mason, Cloud Analyst, Technology Business Research.

As a result of this proliferation, Mason believes enterprises are dealing with cloud sprawl and complexity due to their multivendor, hybrid environments and are looking to professional services vendors for managed services to help run and maintain these increasingly complex environments.

“Professional services adoption goes hand in hand with increasingly complicated hybrid IT implementations,” adds Cassandra Mooshian, Cloud Analyst, Technology Business Research.

“In 2016 we expect to see growth in managed services adoption, particularly with the influx of cloud-based analytics solutions geared toward the line-of-business buyer.

“Managed services are the next generation of outsourcing services and, as such, do not resemble traditional cloud buying patterns, resulting in larger and longer-term deals that drive revenue and profitability but decrease the overall adoption rate compared to the one-time nature of other cloud services.”
