This study showed that as companies adopt cloud strategies for sourcing and building IT services, they are both expecting and achieving significant gains in business key performance indicators (KPIs) including revenue growth, strategic IT budget allocation, IT costs, quicker time to provision, and increased ability to meet SLAs. Further, our study showed that as businesses increased their orientation to cloud, these KPI benefits accelerated. IDC has identified five stages of cloud maturity: ad hoc, opportunistic, repeatable, managed, and optimized (in increasing maturity), and while there are immediate benefits from moving even from ad hoc to opportunistic, the benefits accrue and grow as you move up the adoption curve. Organizations studied are realizing $1.6 million in additional revenue and $1.2 million in reduced costs per cloud application.
