Singapore is slated to reach the tipping point where the majority of enterprises will become cloud-first within the next two years.
That’s according to ServiceNow, who surveyed 225 mid to senior managers evenly split across IT, DevOps and Line-of-Business managers (LOB) in large enterprises to obtain their insights about shifting from traditional data center computing to cloud computing (SaaS, IaaS and PaaS).
There were three key findings from the report:
“Cloud computing has been around since the late 90s and is finally about to reach its tipping point here in Singapore.” says Jimmy Fitzgerald, vice-president and general manager of ServiceNow Asia Pacific and Japan.
“At this point, both opportunities and dangers arise – enterprises must ensure that they are paying attention and not let themselves be lulled into inaction.”
According to ServiceNow, instead of IT diminishing, an opportunity presents itself for IT organizations to become strategic partners to the enterprise by shifting from being a builder of computer infrastructure to a broker of cloud services.
