IDC research suggests not using Cloud is greatest risk to business productivity

Wed, 9 Jan 2013 05:40:20 EST

According to research into the impact of Cloud computing on the data center, conducted by the International Data Corporation (IDC), not using Cloud is the greatest risk to business productivity. The research showed that:
 
·      90 percent of corporate data center capacity goes unused
·      98.9 percent of organisations now use at least one Cloud service
·      23 percent of organisations have multiple Cloud services in full-scale use
·      8 out of 10 employees use consumer Cloud services to fill the corporate IT gap

Cloud computing and its impact on the data center can lead to various planned and unplanned demands depending on the data center's ability to adapt; an issue which has intensified with huge virtualisation sprawl and the expectations of Cloud computing.
 
Cloud brings key benefits set to transform the way IT is consumed within the enterprise, including cost, flexibility and agility. However, the challenge for most organisations is to maintain control in the face of the increasing consumerisation of IT, whereby staff use their own IT in preference to corporate devices and applications. Cloud gains much of its efficiency through very high utilisation, with many cloud services providers' data centers running at 50% or higher. In contrast, many enterprises run their data centers at 10% utilisation or less.
 
Europe's leading independent provider of IT infrastructure services Computacenter can help organisations plan and adapt their data centers to make them more predictable, sustainable and affordable by finding the best-fit, best-value solutions, and best-strategies. The company has developed end-to-end solutions to datacenter transformation and its expertise and knowledge provides a perfect fit for a partnership that will help organisations drive outcomes in virtualisation, automation and the pathway to Cloud.
