Enterprises move their databases and data warehouses to the cloud for all kinds of reasons: reducing costs, staying competitive, being more agile and innovative, taking advantage of new features, and replacing capital expenditure with operational expenditure, to name a few. 166 IT Leaders shared insights into what drove them to move their organization to the cloud and the challenges they faced.
The respondents ranged from those at the executive level, to DBAs, to analytics and business intelligence gurus, but almost all of them agreed on one thing: the cloud is the future, and a much better option than expensive, high-maintenance on-premise solutions. Some were just starting out on their journeys, by assessing their infrastructure, making plans, and deciding on which cloud service provider they wanted to go with. Others had already gone to the cloud or were just weeks from completion.
