One Cloud Provider One Does Not Fit All A view on the UK cloud marketplace 75% of UK businesses are officially 'in the cloud'1 100s 100s of cloud service providers operate in the UK market alone The cloud is used to support a wide mix of requirements: 60% of businesses use cloud for both business-critical and general production activities Companies are trying to create the right cloud model to match their needs: 65% 43% 31% 23% use a blended hybrid cloud use private cloud use public cloud use community cloud To achieve the right cloud strategy, businesses use multiple providers: 62% of businesses are using more than one provider 53% agree that one cloud provider cannot do it all There is a mismatch between what businesses require versus what they actually get from providers: 48% of businesses expect to make big changes to their cloud platforms in the next 12 months Jan Dec 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 Cloud still presents a huge opportunity: 93% of business feel they have not yet utilised cloud to its full potential 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' "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.
