    Cloud Update: Adoption and Transformation

    Clouds are improving business operations, supporting mission-critical workloads, and providing security comparable—if not superior—to in-house data centers.
 

It wasn't that long ago when cloud computing was more of a concept than an entrenched reality, but adoption rates are soaring, and the technology is rapidly going mainstream. A new report from Verizon Enterprise, State of the Market: Enterprise Cloud 2016, provides compelling insights into the direction organizations are taking in terms of cloud computing, and how the attitudes and thinking of business and IT executives are evolving. The report, which combined the company's internal data with information from third-party research and analyst firms, offers a snapshot of cloud trends, along with analysis and predictions on the future of cloud computing in the enterprise. Among the key findings: Clouds are fundamentally changing the way business gets done: They are improving business operations, supporting mission-critical workloads, and providing security that's comparable—if not superior—to security in on-premise data centers. As a result, a growing number of enterprises are re-engineering and remapping business and IT practices and positioning themselves for strong innovation, improved customer experiences and revenue growth.
