Cloud 2017: Driving Business Transformation

The Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) commissioned this research, the sixth major end user-focused research project in this series, to better understand how UK-based organisations are using cloud services, their impact on businesses and the workforce and subsequently how well-placed they are to deal with increasing levels of digital disruption.

To reflect and understand the changing nature of IT procurement and the evolving role of the IT department, we have for the first time included business decision-makers (BDM) in our sample, split equally with IT decision-makers (ITDM). In doing so, CIF has gained a good picture of how cloud is impacting these historically loosely-linked groups and the data indicates that the two worlds are rapidly converging.

This white paper explores these issues at length and sets out to comment on the following:

1. Digital Transformation

2. The cloud landscape

3. Drivers and benefits of cloud adoption

4. Skills and the IT department

5. Cloud inhibitors and challenges

6. Conclusion
