    Introduction

     

    Cloud Computing: Preparing for the Next 20 Years of IT
     

    Cloud computing is reshaping the IT marketplace, creating new opportunities for suppliers and catalyzing changes in traditional IT offerings. Over the next five years, IDC expects spending on IT cloud services to grow almost threefold, reaching $42 billion by 2012 and accounting for 9% of revenues in five key market segments. More importantly, spending on cloud computing will accelerate throughout the forecast period, capturing 25% of IT spending growth in 2012 and nearly a third of growth the following year. IDC expects the cloud adoption trend to be amplified by the current financial crisis. The cloud model offers a much cheaper way for businesses to acquire and use IT – in an economic downturn, the appeal of that cost advantage will be greatly magnified. This advantage is especially important for small and medium businesses, a sector that will be key target in any plan for recovery.

    Our survey results suggest we’re entering a period of accelerating IT cloud services adoption, with the portion of organizations exhibiting significant adoption moving from 15-25% today to 25-45% in three years. It’s not a big leap to consider - given the chart above and the chart below - that IT cloud services are either at, or getting very close to, the "crossing the chasm" stage.

    Cloud Computing

    If this is so, the implication for IT suppliers is very clear: the next three years, as IT cloud services expand from Early Adopters to the Early Majority, is the critical time to develop strong cloud offerings, and play a leadership role in bringing customers, your own organization and your partner ecosystem “across the chasm”. As Moore famously points out, suppliers who fail to seriously contend for a leadership role will be left with decidedly minority share as their reward.

     
    Cloud Computing – a phenomenon?
     

    Many people reasonably wonder if the growing interest in cloud computing is a just a short term phenomenon - the latest hype destined to join other fads in the tech market trash bin. IDC believes that the rapid emergence of cloud services, and the cloud computing model underpinning those services, are ushering in a fundamentally new era of growth and competition in the IT market.  
    The main reason we believe this is so, is that the cloud computing shift is being driven not just by the emergence of new products and technologies, but by a “perfect storm” of market forces, along three vectors: 1) the search for growth (money) in important new segments, 2) the shortcomings of traditional approaches in capturing that growth, and - in case those two weren’t enough to drive entrenched market players into action - 3) competitive pressure from disrupters, with little to lose and everything to gain from pushing the new model.

    Put all three of these market forces together, and we’re certain that the Cloud Computing Era will be with us for the next two decades - driven not by technology fad or hype, but by real economic opportunity and necessity.
