BANGALORE, India, LONDON and NEW YORK, November 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Survey reveals more than 40 percent of enterprises are adopting hybrid cloud; highlights need for a reliable cloud ecosystem integrator

Infosys, a global leader in consulting and technology, revealed results of an IDC worldwide survey, which shows that more than 40 percent of enterprises are adopting hybrid cloud platforms. Many of the companies surveyed pointed to the need for a reliable external service provider to help navigate the complexities involved in moving to the cloud.

The survey results appear in an Infosys-sponsored IDC White Paper, "Adoption of Cloud: Private Cloud is Current Flavor but Hybrid Cloud is Fast Becoming a Reality." The study, conducted by IDC and made available in September 2012, surveyed senior IT decision-makers from 326 large companies across the United States, United Kingdom, France, and Germany.

The cloud ecosystem is becoming more complex because of a mix of public, private, and on-premises Information Technology. Companies in the survey said that developing an expertise in monitoring these complex environments and managing them holistically have become significant challenges for them.

Some 56 percent of respondents are engaging or considering engaging an external service provider to understand how they can help with their cloud strategy, adoption roadmap, and implementation. Companies in the survey emphasized the need for working with these service providers to address the complexities that come with building and managing a unified hybrid cloud environment.

The study showed that the approach to the cloud and adoption of the hybrid cloud varies across industries.  Some 53 percent of organizations in the Telecom industry have formalized cloud strategies and roadmaps, compared to more than 38 percent of organizations in the Financial Services arena. When it comes to hybrid cloud adoption, Financial Services leads the pack with more than 64 percent of organizations planning to adopt, followed by Healthcare (47 percent), Manufacturing (40 percent), and Retail (37 percent).
