Four in 10 Australian businesses plan to run all or most of their IT infrastructure on the cloud within three years, research from Oracle indicates.

The majority of respondents to a survey by the company expect infrastructure as a service (IaaS) to have some role in their operations by this time, and just 12% believe IaaS will have little to no role in their business.

Among companies already using IaaS to some extent, 62% say it makes it easier to innovate, and the same proportion says moving to IaaS has cut their time to deploy new applications or services. In addition, 58% say IaaS has reduced their ongoing maintenance costs.

While some respondents fear the move to IaaS will be complicated, 64% of experienced users say the migration was easier than they anticipated.

“When it comes to cloud adoption there has always been a case of perception lagging behind reality. Cloud is still relatively new to a lot of businesses and some outdated perceptions persist,” Oracle APAC Group VP and Chief Architect for Technology and Cloud Chris Chelliah said.

“We are now seeing high levels of success and satisfaction from businesses that are saving money, cutting complexity and driving exciting innovation thanks to cloud infrastructure. Those resisting the move need to challenge the perceptions holding them back because the longer they wait, the further ahead their competitors will pull.”
