Today, we announced the findings from our third annual Enterprise Cloud Index (ECI) survey and research report, measuring enterprise progress with the adoption of private, hybrid, and public clouds. For the third year in a row, respondents named hybrid cloud as the ideal IT infrastructure model. 86 percent selected hybrid cloud as the most flexible and agile approach.
We also saw that hybrid cloud adoption this year has accelerated due to a renewed focus on strategic IT team efforts to drive positive business impact during the COVID-19 crisis. Our respondent base of 3,400 IT decision-makers spanned multiple industries, business sizes, and geographies. Responses also provide a window into the expected long-term adoption and impact of new technologies as a result of the pandemic.
