McKinsey Predicts Enterprises Are Adopting Cloud Faster As IT Shifts From Build To Buy

Enterprises’ adoption of IaaS as the primary environment for workloads will jump from 10% in 2015 to 51% in 2018. In 2015, 77% of enterprises used traditionally built IT infrastructure as the primary environment for at least one workload; by 2018, this will drop to 43%. Enterprises are likely to choose “hyperscale” providers such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft, which have the largest capacity. Time-to-market and quality are accelerating cloud adoption in the enterprise with security and compliance being top concerns.
