Why Read This Report

Cloud services in the enterprise are growing, as customers increasingly want to get out of the data center business. While these services offer flexible new options for CIOs, infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals, and other business and technology leaders, they pose new challenges in sourcing and ongoing administration, particularly as attention shifts to systems of record and multicloud destinations. Many customers not only take a cloud-first view of migration but also pursue a "public cloud or bust" strategy. I&O pros should use effective portfolio evaluation — including strategic rightsourcing — to identify the right providers and migration candidates. Forrester reviews and revises this report periodically for continued relevance and accuracy; we are updating it now to reflect our latest research on migrating applications to the cloud.
