SAP & Wakefield Research Survey Fortune 1000 CIOs

Hybrid Cloud 7.11.13

The new study of chief information officers (CIOs) from Fortune 1000 companies and Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Companies in America – an elite polling audience – reveals IT decision makers’ opinions on cloud-based and on-premise IT procedures. The results underscore the importance of hybrid cloud environments, a combination of on-premise and cloud-based applications.

Key results include:

  • Demand for a Hybrid Cloud Environment. Nearly 9 in 10 CIOs (87 percent) believe cloud solutions are important to their business, while almost as many – 8 in 10 (83 percent) –  believe on-premise solutions are important.
  • Proof is in the Pudding. Three-fourths of CIOs that use the hybrid cloud say that their company’s IT processes have become less complex since migration.
