Grazed from PRWeb. Author: PR Announcement.

CompuCom, a leading technology infrastructure services company, today announced the results of its recent website poll, revealing that 49 percent of IT professionals surveyed identify cloud adoption as the top IT trend for 2014 – and that cost reductions (32 percent) and accessibility to technology with less friction (31 percent) will be the biggest drivers of cloud technology.

The poll collected 683 responses from IT professionals across multiple industries from January 1, 2014 through February 25, 2014. On-demand delivery of IT services via the cloud have been available for several years, but limited understanding about options, costs and benefits have stalled wholesale implementation. Over time, companies have recognized that cloud services provide scalability, high availability and performance that are worth the challenges of implementation. Most industry analysts call for billion-dollar growth in cloud service adoption during 2014...

Mobile Cloud Services Platforms: The Back-End of Mobile Apps

Grazed from PRNewsWire. Author: PR Announcement.

The explosion of mobile applications and devices has lead to an extremely crowded and fragmented market leaving mobile developers searching for new opportunities to differentiate and improve the user experience.

The Cloud-Based Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Market 2012-2017

Grazed from PRNewsWire. Author: PR Announcement.

Companies are often held back by an inflexible and complex IT infrastructure that cannot keep up with the changing needs of business. These restraints result in slow deployment of critical applications and services, limited resources, poor operation management, and unpredictable system integration.

Virtualised servers and desktops hold the key to more efficient IT management. Although virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) has historically been deemed too expensive, the recent surge of cloud computing offers a cost-effective, managed platform for VDI that stands to revolutionise the structure of enterprise IT...

The security of the data and applications is one of the major concerns for enterprises. With many enterprises adopting virtualized computing infrastructure and hosting their data and applications over the cloud infrastructure, there is a need for security features to be incorporated as a part of the enterprise infrastructure.

The VDI solution providers are providing better security features as a part of the solutions, which is leading to higher adoption of these solutions by enterprises and end-users. The communication networks are being enabled with data encoding, which enables secure transmission of data from one point to another. Security features are being provided independent of the underlying hardware configuration, which is another positive factor leading to higher adoption...

India To Spend $3.9 Billion On Cloud Services By 2017

Grazed from CXO. Author: Editorial Staff.

Public Cloud is reaching a greater level of maturity in India. According to a new Gartner report, around $3.9 billion will be spent on cloud services in India from 2013 through 2017, of which $1.7 billion will be spent on software-as-a-service (SaaS). The overall public cloud services market in India is also set to grow 33.6% this year to touch $404 million, an increase of $101 million from the 2012 revenue of $303 million, said the research firm.

Apart from SaaS that represents the most mature segment in the cloud services marketplace, infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), including cloud compute, storage and print services, is also expected to grow 33.9% in 2013 to $59.2 million, said Gartner. “The public cloud services market continues robust growth in India through over the forecast period of 2011 through 2017. While SaaS dominates as the largest cloud segment, the high growth rates of IaaS and platform-as-a-service (PaaS) make them important markets to watch,” said Ed Anderson, Research Director at Gartner...

Tips For Midsize Businesses Struggling With Cloud Infrastructure

Grazed from Forbes. Author: Dick Csaplar.

Cloud computing is and will have an extensive impact on the IT infrastructure of companies of all sizes. I’ve come to this conclusion thanks to my extensive research as a Senior Analyst with the Aberdeen Group. And after a survey of a wide range of companies in January, we’re able to see an even clearer picture of how the public cloud is being used.

The data show that small companies — organizations with up to 100 employees — are, in general, gaining much from using new services based in the cloud, specifically ones they could not afford to purchase and manage on their own. As seen in the chart below, small companies do not find application integration and customization a challenge. Because these tasks are very technical, small businesses don’t even attempt them: They use the cloud services as they are provided, “right from the box.”...

IDC Sees Costly Battle for Cloud Developers Ahead

Grazed from WSJ. Author: Don Clark.

An already fierce battle for primacy among cloud services will shift into a more costly phase next year, IDC predicts. To the victors go the spoils–software developers. The research firm, as a part of a broad annual year-ahead forecast being issued Tuesday, predicts that the big companies jockeying to take over more corporate computing jobs will pony up to expand their computing capacity in 2014.

“I wouldn’t be surprised to see them grow their cloud data centers by 20%,” said Frank Gens, an IDC analyst who helped lead the forecasting effort. Amazon.com’s Web services unit has a head start in the field, but players like IBM, Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, VMware and Salesforce.com are jostling to catch up. Such services–part of what IDC calls the 3rd Platform market–don’t simply provide generic computing cycles, Gens said. Rather, they have assembled distinct stacks of software to help companies make Web-based applications...
