The increasingly global interest in cloud continues to spur massive business and operational model changes across the IT landscape. Customers want to purchase the outcome they desire, and no longer feel the need to own and control every aspect of their IT environments. The shift is causing the vendor community to add cloud offerings to portfolios, changing the way software, hardware and professional services are offered; however, the need remains for vendors to develop and maintain trusted brands.

Our cloud portfolio examines how vendors are changing their business models to incorporate cloud. We examine which workloads are or are not moving to cloud and why. Our research spans specific cloud businesses, customer adoption and market perception.
