As a consequence of these trends, THINKstrategies has found that corporate adoption of SaaS is accelerating. This adoption is not only among small- and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), but also large-scale enterprises. It is not only in ‘front-office’ applications, such as customer relationship management (CRM), but also in ‘back-office’ areas, such as accounting and financial systems. Industry-specific, vertical market oriented SaaS solutions are also emerging......

With every new cloud service a business consumes, the total amount of content that needs to be stored and accessed grows substantially. However, because of the inherent agility of cloud workload provisioning, some workloads created by business users aren’t included in enterprise backup schemes. Although these workloads support business critical functions, they’re often outside IT governance.

The need to provide fast, efficient, secure, and reliable access to cloud services to enterprise users is critical as businesses mature and begin to use cloud services across multiple locations within a country and around the world. For this reason, many enterprises are looking for dedicated private network connections to enable them to access their cloud services using a highly efficient, dedicated connection option, rather than the Internet.

An increasingly competitive marketplace, coupled with the ongoing convergence of IT and services, means service providers are continually seeking ways to augment their existing revenues. The pressure to manage costs, reduce complexity and increase agility is no longer the sole burden of the CIO − it’s becoming a business imperative. As the service provider market matures, it’s critical that you’re able to respond to your customers’ needs quickly and effectively.

Is your Cloud provider outcome-based or merely technology-focused?

Most companies that are looking to transition to a Cloud-based model often get hung up on the technology side of the equation. Assessing projected capacities, load balancing, and memory throughput rates are all well and good – these things are all part of the due diligence process, after all.

Eighty-four percent of all software investments are currently made in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). In 2017, SaaS will generate 60% of the public cloud turnover and within the next 12 months, 60% of all businesses will be deploying SaaS solutions. These statistics clearly demonstrate that in the near future SaaS will completely change the business software solutions landscape and software purchasing models. There is no doubt that the transition from a traditional to a consumption-based software purchasing model will take place – the only open question is when.

“You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave” – that’s true not only for the well-known hotel in The Eagles’ song, but also in many lines of business when talking about paradigm shifts and pervasive changes we’ve faced over the past several years. Nowadays, cars are more and more being leased, borrowed and shared, newspapers and TV are consumed online, servers and memory are accessed only when required.

Dimension Data has furthered its commitment to the cloud by bringing on 25-year industry veteran Tina Gravel to be the company's first vice president and general manager of cloud services for the Americas, the company said Tuesday.

With every new cloud service consumed the total amount of content that needs to be stored and accessed is growing substantially.
