Okay, well, IDG didn’t specially say that directly *to* CloudJumper, but their latest report titled, “Cloud Computing Has Come of Age,” sure tells us that we are in the right place at the right time!
According to their report, “…organizations continue to increase their investment and evolve their cloud environments in order to leverage the technology to drive their business forward.” They also give us a list of great statistics:
• 73% of businesses use at least one app or have a portion of their computing infrastructure in the cloud. And, another 17% plan to follow suit in the next year
• Across all business sizes, cloud budgets are up
• 38% say their IT department “feels pressure” to move 100% to the cloud
• 42% are using a multi-cloud approach
• While currently the average environment is 53% non-cloud, that number will shrink to 31% in the next 18 months
Now, if only I could add in the sound of a screeching tire into our blog this week, because we would at that last statement, both parts of it! About 18 months ago, we published a white paper called, “The Workspace as a Service Land Grab.” Since we wrote that white paper, our partner network has skyrocketed. Our partner network will continue to grow, and we will be responsible for helping drive that number from 53% to 31%.
Will You Be With Us or Sitting on the Sideline? It’s pretty easy, if your MSP hasn’t found a cloud solution to offer, your window is getting smaller and smaller. Again, you don’t have to listen to us; instead, listen to IDG: in 18 months — That before Memorial Day of 2020 — only 31% of businesses WON’T BE deploying a cloud solution! Okay, so that’s still a lot of market left, but every day you don’t jump with both feet into the cloud, is a day your competitor is sewing up a company making up those 22 percentage points. If you read our blog, you will know just how sticky cloud are! So, if you haven’t done it yet, it might just be time for you to slam on the breaks and change the course of your MSP: its time to add either our turnkey Workspace as a Service or your own Desktop as a Service solution using our software!

IDG concludes their report by stating:
Organizations are no longer questioning whether they should move to the cloud. They’re now focusing squarely on how best to leverage the new generation of cloud services by adopting new delivery models and enabling multi-cloud architectures. And while their initial motivation for cloud migration may have been simplicity in pursuit of cost savings, companies are finding that their desire for greater agility is increasing the complexity of their cloud environments, with lasting ramifications for the way they staff their IT departments and manage their IT infrastructure.
