Understand Latest Trends in Hybrid Cloud Adoption

What Does the ESG Study Entail?

The Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG) study is based on primary research and aims to effectively derive IT insights in the areas of hybrid cloud, data center as a service, and data center security.

ESG conducted a research survey of 200 IT decision-makers directly knowledgeable about their organizations’ cloud priorities and perceptions. They analyzed the results and have compiled key results in this paper.

You can use the findings provided in this paper to understand the latest trends and challenges in cloud adoption and inform your own hybrid/multi-cloud projects and data center security strategy.

What Areas of Research Are Covered in This Paper?

Through the IT-targeted survey, the ESG analysts look into the prevalence of hybrid applications and related challenges. The survey also seeks to determine the market demand for Data Center-as-a-Service (DCaaS) now and over the next 3 years. In addition, the paper investigates how important E-W security is considered and contrasts it with the current actual levels of East-West (E-W) security policy enforcement, discussing the potential reasons behind the gap.

Here is a sample chart showing respondents’ opinions on E-W security on a 5-point Likert scale.
