The survey results showed a significant shift to cloud for legacy Oracle Applications from in-house infrastructure by 2020.
451 Research: “…major enterprise software suites are primarily internal for most businesses at this point. However, the shift to cloud will gain steam over the next two years.”
Move to public cloud IaaS, such as Amazon Web Services, is increasing rapidly at +7% change in over two years, 117% increase for this target environment.
“In-house infrastructure is the dominant implementation model today, cited by 65% of businesses as the primary venue…” – decreasing to minority (46%) over next two years.
Public cloud IaaS is the fastest growing of all target environments followed by the expected move to an Oracle environment, either SaaS-based Cloud Applications or to Oracle Cloud infrastructure. The breakdown of the preference of Oracle environment was not available from respondent data.
