Cloud computing and hosted solutions have forever changed how companies operate. As cloud solutions become a standard in business infrastructure, people are looking for cloud adoption strategies that work. This presentation covers:

One of the biggest changes emerging in the cloud market is the attitude of IT. Successful cloud applications such as Salesforce and Workday, and cloud infrastructure leaders like Amazon, gained early traction with business groups looking to bypass IT roadblocks. Today however, IT is often the chief sponsor of transitioning to the cloud.
Why? Well, the single most important consideration for IT when talking cloud is security. And this change means that IT is getting more comfortable with cloud security. Cloud vendors can provide 24/7 support, scale, and test and apply patches quickly. That’s harder for internal IT departments to support.
Once they get comfortable with security in the cloud, IT departments start to take advantage of the opportunity to get out of the business of setting up and maintaining physical hardware. Instead they get to focus on larger strategic initiatives like prototyping cloud data ecosystems and enabling selfservice analytics within their organizations.
In the early days, cloud analytics was for cloud data. Now cloud analytics is for all your data no matter where it lives.
As organizations adopt a hybrid data architecture, they are demanding that analytics vendors support both cloud data and on-premises data. Cloud services like Birst and Tableau Online oer advantages when connecting to data in the cloud, but also allow you to work with critical on-premises data.
With more vendors oering software that spins up easily on virtual machines in the cloud, “in house” infrastructure is increasingly in the cloud as well.
While the management and administration of the virtual machines still falls to the customer, the hosted environments oered by Infrastructure-as-a-Service players oer an attractive alternative to setting up physical servers.
