“UK businesses are dealing with multiple suppliers in order to get a right-fit cloud strategy but there are two main outcomes from this process. Firstly, from a management point of view, dealing with multiple suppliers is an inefficient balancing-act. Secondly, each separate supplier is left with an incomplete picture of the customer and the platforms provided therefore do not align with the customer’s long-term growth strategy. This is leading to businesses constantly striving for something that cannot be achieved, and ultimately the feeling that they need to change providers.”

“The research illustrates how UK businesses are trying to create the right cloud model to match their needs. But it is clear that using an increasing number of different cloud platforms simultaneously can attract a series of problems. Adapt believes that this signals the need for a cloud integrator to help a customer manage the right platforms efficiently and ultimately improve their competitive advantage.” Stewart Smythe, CEO at Adapt

Companies are trying to create the right cloud model to match their needs: 65% 43% 23% 31% use private cloud use public cloud use community cloud use a blended hybrid cloud 60% of businesses use cloud for both business-critical and general production activities The cloud is used to support a wide mix of requirements: To achieve the right cloud strategy, businesses use multiple providers: 100s of cloud service providers operate in the UK market alone A view on the UK cloud marketplace One Cloud Provider Does Not Fit All 100s 53% agree that one cloud provider cannot do it all 62% of businesses are using more than one provider 48% of businesses expect to make big changes to their cloud platforms in the next 12 months There is a mismatch between what businesses require versus what they actually get from providers: 93% 25% don’t expect their cloud provider to be meeting their business needs in 12 months 75% do not feel that their cloud provider really understands their business of business feel they have not yet utilised cloud to its full potential Cloud still presents a huge opportunity: Dealing with multiple suppliers is an inefficient balancing-act, each separate supplier is left with an incomplete picture of the customer Customers and providers are not aligned to support the customer’s long-term growth strategy: Businesses will be looking to work with ‘cloud integrators’ 75%of UK businesses are officially ‘in the cloud’ Find out what your right-fit cloud infrastructure needs are right now - take our 2 minute survey: Take the survey www.adapt.com/services/cloud-services/right-fit-cloud.html “Providers that can bundle the most appropriate multi-provider services together under one contract, twinned with a real understanding of the customer’s strategy, will be the providers that make significant progress in the market. These ‘integrators’ will act as a point of contact for ongoing management, support, consultancy and service development. The cloud market itself is an active one, with around 200 service providers operating in the space and M&As regularly taking place. It’s possible that those providers that can’t offer the high-level management layer necessary will be absorbed by others operating as ‘cloud integrators’ in the next five years.” Philip Carse, Principle Analyst 1 Cloud industry Forum, 2013 1
