A survey on cloud adoption revolving around bottom-up end-user research across four major markets was conducted for 2014. The key objective was to understand the level of adoption of Cloud SaaS Solutions in Enterprise and Vertical Application markets. It had a mix of CIOs, IT Managers, IT Staff, Business Executives, Business Managers and other non-IT roles.
The primary intent across functions to move On-Cloud, indicated Cost Reduction as major key benefit, followed by Modern Approach, Innovation and Operational Agility as Business Drivers. The challenges of not choosing Public Cloud included privacy, legalities, data breaches and shared technologies. To address these specific challenges the respondents are inclined towards building private or hosted private cloud services in spite of it being twice the cost of public cloud.
Despite all the concerns, SaaS leads in the context of the public cloud industry due its ease of deployment and faster access to innovation and pay-as-you-go model with minimum upfront costs. While SaaS, IaaS and BPaaS are most mature and adaptive, PaaS remains least evolved. CRM is ranked as the top application that is deployed on Cloud for 2014 and will continue to be so in 2017 as well. ERP is at second for 2014 and gets replaced by BI in 2017 . Region wise, APAC is leading in spend on SaaS applications, whereas USA and European countries are planning their expansions significantly.
