PwC Survey Says IaaS Will Count for a Third of IT Resources in 2014

Growing demand for Infrastructure-as-a-Service in the enterprise market is creating opportunities for a new breed of cloud-based IT infrastructure providers to deliver innovative private cloud services, according to a new PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) report, “Infrastructure-as-a-Service: New providers innovate to win enterprise cloud business.” According to the results, 77 percent of respondents already have a plan and 64 percent said some type of cloud, including private and public, would be the best way to manage IT infrastructure in three years.

PwC surveyed 489 business executives in an effort to understand the real state of data center management today. More than half of the respondents said that service providers that specialize in private cloud offerings would be the best choice in three years. These infrastructure specialty providers will be bumping against traditional IT outsourcing service providers, according to the executives interviewed for the study. “By 2014, the typical IT infrastructure for today’s customers of outsourced IT services will rely on cloud computing for more than a third of their IT resource base,” says the report.

This report is the first in a series of results from this research and more information can be found on their website here.
