One in four enterprise organisations face internal pressure to explore new cloud technologies

Research from Ensono and Wipro, conducted by Forrester, has found that 50 per cent of enterprise organisations are expanding or upgrading mainframe versus 69 per cent who are expanding or upgrading implementation of cloud. The research shows that 88 per cent of organisations are adopting a hybrid IT approach and 89 per cent state that adoption includes a hybrid cloud strategy.

Research from Ensono and Wipro, conducted by Forrester, has found that 50 per cent of enterprise organisations are expanding or upgrading mainframe versus69 per cent who are expanding or upgrading implementation of cloud. The research shows that 88 per cent of organisations are adopting a hybrid IT approach and 89 per cent state that adoption includes a hybrid cloud strategy.

Such is the focus on hybrid cloud uptake that one in four enterprise businesses cite internal pressures as a key motivator to exploring new cloud technologies.

Of the enterprise organisations still relying on mainframe, more than a quarter (28 per cent) are refactoring a portion of their apps to take advantage of new cloud technologies such as serverless (74 per cent) and containers (90 per cent).

However, the research also highlighted that companies are not as likely to migrate finance and accounting workloads, preferring to migrate (refactor) only a portion of the workload. According to the respondents, the barriers to cloud migration include substantial costs, potential business disruption during migration, and security and compliance concerns. Refactoring enables organisations to move parts of workloads to the cloud, whatever the most appropriate one that may be.
