Key Cloud Adoption Trends for ISVs 

by Spanish Point - Jan 19, 2023

ISVs, like many organisations, have had to adapt to macro-economic, political, and societal challenges in recent years. Microsoft believes the best way to prepare for this uncertainty is to do more with less: less complexity and cost, with more agility, resilience, and innovation. This means applying digital capabilities to extend what ISVs can achieve amidst today’s constraints. Microsoft commissioned a global survey with more than 1200 IT decision makers to understand the challenges faced by customers and their plans around cloud adoption.

The study revealed three key cloud adoption trends:

  1. Cloud adoption plans remain integral to strategies in uncertain business climates. 62% of organisations have a migration and modernisation strategy in place. Their top motivators are reducing total business costs, future proofing business strategy, and driving revenue growth.
  2. Modernisation is a key focus for digital transformation. 82% of surveyed organizations said migrating to the cloud is a steppingstone towards digital transformation. 74% of workloads that have already migrated are candidates for modernisation.
  3. Hybrid and multicloud interoperability and integration are expected. Organisations continue to embrace multicloud and are looking for cross-cloud management and interoperability from their cloud providers.
