In a recent survey by IDG Research Services, a full 90 percent of respondents have either already implemented CI or plan to do so in the near future. Nearly half are leveraging CI as a key part of their cloud strategy in general, and they are also leveraging CI to support an IT-as-a-service (ITaaS) operating model. This white paper discusses insights from the IDG survey—from the IT and business imperatives driving the CI shift, to how organizations are evaluating their CI options, and what beneﬁts they hope to achieve by deploying CI.
- Insight 1: Adoption of CI is growing, often as part of a broader cloud strategy
- Insight 2: Deploying CI is about meeting business needs
- Insight 3: Companies are looking to CI to deliver greater agility in a fast-moving market
