I’m not surprised by the data I’ve quoted below. The Cloud will definitely be disruptive to existing IT outsource partnerships. It will be fun to see how wins the upcoming battles 🙂
The survey indicated 77% of firms have started planning or have plans for some form of cloud computing and 64% said the cloud will be the best way to manage IT infrastructure three years from now. Asked who would be the best provider of that infrastructure three years from now, 55% said service providers who specialize in private cloud offerings; 39% said traditional outsourcing companies.
