Cloud Confusion
Hard to believe that companies would move back to on-premises from public cloud. Something must have happened in order for them to become skittish. Either that, or it sounds like they did not have a good service provider.

@dcawrey yes, you are right, nothing works out of the box as everything must be corrected and customised right...

@batye This is why IBM exists...

No one talks about consulting, only products. But cloud products need pretty special refining by consultants or IT employees before anything can work. Tech these days is so custom - nothing works right out of the box perfectly.

@dcawrey yes, you are right as hybrid cloud for today it does make sense for now, but it do not offer all in one fit all solution... but everything takes time as technology keep growing...

This is why hybrid clouds, analytics and virtualization is becoming more popular by the day. Cloud computing in and of itself is not the total solution for IT. It's got to be a more mixed bag than just outsourcing all datacenter activity to the cloud.

Re: Cloud confusion
@mhhf1ve yes, well, that one is particularly ambitious. Smaller scale polls occur with regularity from the likes of Pew and Quinnipiac University.

Re: Cloud confusion
Surveys that actually span more then 10,000 people are somewhat rare -- because they're usually very expensive. And if they're not expensive, then you have to wonder if it's an "online survey" that was hit by an automated bot. 

There's a reason why the US Census is only done once a decade! :P

Re: Cloud confusion
@mhhf1ve so it struck you, too. Yes, most run to just a few thousand at most.

Re: Cloud confusion
> "I noticed that the survey is based on 90,000 employees."

Hmm. That's actually such a HUGE number for a IT survey that I thought it might be wrong, so I tried to look up the source survey... and it looks like the survey wasn't based on 90,000 employees, but over 9,000 interviews. The press release says "over 9,000 businesses" were surveyed, but I find it hard to believe that none of the businesses/employees overlapped.

Not that this makes the survey any less valid, but the numbers weren't *that* high (90,000!) -- that would have been a major IT survey endeavor....

An independent survey of IT leaders in more than 9,000 businesses spanning twenty-four countries across the US, EMEA and Asia Pac found that digital solutions drive around half of revenue (47% on average) for organizations, whether through customer facing applications or more back-office functionality.

... 

Research was conducted by three separate research agencies – Maru / edr in the US, Madbox in Asia Pac and Insight Avenue in EMEA.  9,302 interviews were conducted in total with IT decision makers in businesses with 500+ employees in EMEA and the US, and 100+ employees in Asia Pac.

It's no surprise that a company would choose to provide the security of service sought by clients and customers; it's good for profits. Too bad it had to be this way though.
