From personally owned “BYOD” laptops to mobile app consumerization, hybrid computing is the new reality—and one that’s not going away, according to a new cloud adoption survey.
“Organizations reveal their plans for the cloud: embrace both cloud and on-premises technology, creating a hybrid infrastructure for end-user computing (EUC).”
In a survey of more than 1,000 enterprises, our customers revealed staggering hybrid computing and mobility trends.
Work Rises to the Cloud: Hybrid Computing Adoption Trends
Cloud computing and next-gen enterprise mobility intermingle with traditional computing environments in most enterprises. This infiltration spans the width and breadth of the very modern workforce.
EUC Survey Reveals Rising Demands for Hybrid Computing & Better User Experiences
Earlier this year, we surveyed our VMware User Group (VMUG) to understand the implications of cloud technology on computing and enterprise mobility. Here are three of the most eye-opening results:
1. Mixing On-Prem & Cloud Mobility Is a Balancing Act
Actually, when it comes to enterprise mobility management (EMM), cloud is quickly taking the lead. According to the VMware hybrid computing survey:
- 29% of those surveyed said they have an “even mix” of cloud solution and on-premises usage.
- 28% said EMM is primarily on-prem usage.
2. EMM Is the “Most Considered” EUC Cloud Technology
Respondents reported that mobility was the most considered or current usage of cloud technology within the EUC technology category, but many enterprises still lag behind.
- ~16% of respondents currently use cloud-based EMM, compared to less than 10% cloud-based desktop management.
- ~50% said their organizations are evaluating or considering cloud EMM.
3. Execs & LOB Leaders WANT Hybrid Computing
Perhaps the most surprising finding of VMware’s cloud adoption survey was that, in many cases, executives and line-of-business (LOB) leaders drive demand for hybrid computing. IT and CIOs continue to lead that march toward the cloud, and the rest of the business is—according to the survey – supporting and, in some cases, driving the transition to the EUC hybrid cloud.
Delivering cloud-based applications to the business was the highest LOB and executive demand specified:
- 48% IT staff
- 17% LOB leadership
- 15% executives (non-CIO)
