IS THE PUBLIC CLOUD GROWING QUICKLY? 

  1. Q1 2021 vs. Q4 2020: AWS (+30%), Azure (+23%), GCP (+46%)
  2. Growing faster than On-Premise, Existing IT (8.4%)

WHY ISN"T THE PUBLIC CLOUD GROWING FASTER?

  1. Data Gravity - Moving data into the cloud is expensive and slow
  2. Data Centers are long-term depreciation activities (10-20 years)
  3. “App Modernization” budgets are small - as a % of IT budgets
  4. SaaS is growing at 20% YoY
  5. Cloud Costs are expensive and complicated to understand
  6. Tech VC is still investing in Tech Startups
  7. Security is always a Top 3 priority, and Cloud Security is different
  8. A large portion of Enterprise and Gov’t isn’t connected to the Internet - and Mainframes aren’t in the cloud. 
  9. Retraining Cloud Skills takes time (Gladwell 10,000 hour rule)
