As more and more companies undertake an almost mandatory digital transformation, the act of moving critical workloads to the cloud is being held up by legacy IT infrastructure.
Legacy IT Network Slows Successful Cloud Integration
A recent survey of over 1,000 IT decision makers by application performance provider Riverbed found that 91 percent of respondents said that they were struggling to implement a cloud strategy, citing legacy networks as a barrier to success. According to the survey, 85 percent of decision makers believed they were several years away from a successful migration, with six out of 10 claiming that their on-site IT infrastructure has a negative impact on their business several times a week.
Despite these apparent roadblocks, the cloud services market has shown year-on-year growth of around 31 percent in the last 12 months, a Gartner Research report said.
As you would expect from an IT sector that is dominated by tech behemoths, Amazon is the clear leader with a 44.2 percent share of the cloud provider market. Gartner said that cloud adoption and application migrations are being driven by specific business initiatives and requirements, such as improved encryption techniques and a more agile way of working.
