State of Cloud Adoption & Modernization

State of Cloud Adoption & Modernization

Organizations' cloud modernization journeys underscore the importance of a nuanced approach to cloud migration, highlighting that not every application or workload is ideally suited for the cloud.

The phenomenon of workload repatriation, with a significant 72% of organizations moving workloads back on-premises, illustrates the dynamic nature of cloud strategies and the need for ongoing evaluation of cloud deployments.

These insights suggest a pivotal shift towards strategic, tailored cloud migrations that account for performance, compliance, and cost implications, encouraging organizations to carefully assess which workloads benefit most from cloud environments versus those best retained or repatriated.

Moving to the cloud to save? Think again

Top 3 drivers of cloud migration

Cloud Migration

The top 3 drivers of cloud migration:

  • 56% To improve scalability
  • 49% To add cloud capabilities that better support CX
  • 45% To strengthen IT goals and objectives

Some of the traditional challenges around managing cloud costs was a middle tier response which indicates that the benefits of workloads operating in the cloud basically outweigh cost concerns.

Cost, performance and data sovereignty are the leading catalysts for workload repatriation

Cost Performance

72% of organizations reporting a repatriation of workloads from the cloud back to on-premises were driven primarily by concerns over data sovereignty, including legal requirements and the desire for greater control over their data.

This scenario underscores the dynamic nature of workload placement decisions influenced by regulatory, operational and strategic considerations.

The on-going exchange of workloads between cloud and on-premises environments suggests a strategic reassessment of deployment models, particularly in light of evolving data sovereignty laws and the pursuit for operational efficiency and control.

The evolving cloud landscape reveals a critical insight: strategic, selective cloud migration is essential. With 72% of organizations repatriating workloads due to data sovereignty and performance concerns, it’s clear that a one-size-fits-all approach to cloud adoption is insufficient. The path to optimal performance and compliance is realized by tailoring your cloud strategies to the unique needs and regulatory requirements of each workload
