Survey Says: 3 Years More For Cloud Before It Covers The Whole Sky

A recent survey conducted by ISACA on the 2012 Cloud Computing Market revealed good news for the IT people. You would be surprised to know that, despite its popularity, cloud computing is going through its infancy stage. The study shows that three more years may be necessary before we can see a fully developed cloud computing service.

There has been a lot of debate about the rapid growth of the cloud and its broadness that may soon change all the business graphs and trends. But according to the survey participants, the industry-level cloud services are still in their crawling stage. To be specific, enterprise cloud as infrastructure and platform services need more time to develop in order to acquire a significant position as a business solution.

While it’s true that the world is quickly adapting to this new-age computing solution, we are yet to come to terms with the possible pros and cons before we can be totally dedicated to the cloud. Security issues, legal issue, performance measurements, among others, still need to be defined clearly, felt the participants to the survey. Let us take a look at some quick facts the survey disclosed.

Popularity chart of different cloud practices:

SaaS (Software as a Service) as applications – 63%
IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) as compute power – 55%
PaaS (Platform as a Service) as middleware – 43%

1. Cost management

3. Legal issues
4. Regulatory agreement
5. Information guarantee
6. Longevity of vendors
7. Vendor lock-in

9. Disaster recovery
10. Performance monitoring
