Cloud adoption is an expanding part of IT organizations’ strategies, and IT architects are growing

more sophisticated in how they think about cloud. As of 2016, enterprise adoption of cloud has

truly moved into the mainstream, with 68% currently using public or private cloud for more than

one to two small applications, a 61% increase over last year’s figure. On-premises and hybrid

cloud are a critical part of the mix, with 73% pursuing a hybrid cloud strategy and on-premises

private cloud spending projected to grow by 40% over the next two years.
