    REPORT: Cloud Powers The Modern Adaptive Enterprise

    Vision: The Cloud Computing Playbook

    October 11, 2019Dave Bartoletti

    Cloud is no longer tactical but rather a strategic enabler of connected platform economies. Infrastructure and operations (I&O) leaders must orchestrate cloud ecosystems that link employees, customers, partners, vendors, and devices to serve rising customer expectations and encourage rapid adaptation to changing markets. Firms will become cloud platform companies themselves — stewards of their own cloud ecosystems. This report highlights transformations shaping a world of connected cloud ecosystems and describes how this evolution should change everyone's thinking about cloud. This is an update of a previously published report; Forrester reviews and revises it periodically for continued relevance and accuracy.

    REPORT: The Public Cloud Market Outlook, 2019 To 2022

    Public Cloud Growth Continues To Power Tech Spending

    July 2, 2019 Andrew Bartels, Dave Bartoletti, John R. Rymer

    Public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and software-as-a-service (SaaS) have fundamentally reshaped the way enterprises consume technology — and how they build and operate the software they use to create compelling experiences. We project that revenue from public cloud infrastructure, platforms, and applications will slow to a still healthy CAGR of 21% between 2018 and 2022, reaching $411 billion. Fewer, but larger, public cloud platform providers and a maturing SaaS ecosystem will dominate enterprise cloud spending. CIOs should use this forecast to benchmark the pace and shape of their public cloud strategies.
