The cloud is arguably one of the most significant trends ever to hit the IT industry. Total public IT cloud services (SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS) spending will reach $127 billion in 2018. The total IT market
will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of only 4.1% for 2013–2018, while the public cloud market will grow at a CAGR of 22.8%. This means that public cloud spending growth will be
five-and-a-half times total IT market spending growth.
Many IT managers, owners, and CIOs are embracing the benefits of cloud IT. Cloud has now reached critical mass in the consciousness of small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), whether they are acquiring new software-as-a-service (SaaS) capabilities or making infrastructure upgrades via infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Among companies of all sizes, 50% are currently using at least one public SaaS offering, with a further 20% planning to implement public SaaS within the next year. Platform as a service (PaaS) and IaaS are less deployed today, but those areas are seeing substantial interest and growth.

The Digital Disruption Of SaaS Is Transforming
The ERP Software Landscape
Demand for cloud-based ERP solutions is
growing rapidly as midsize and enterprise clients
explore alternative options to legacy on-premises
systems. Pure-play SaaS vendors are seeing
increasing traction, while most traditionally
on-premises vendors are moving rapidly to
transition their business models from license plus
maintenance to subscription.
Businesses who have lived through the evolution of the digital age are well aware that we’ve
experienced a generational shift in technology. The rise of software as a service (SaaS),
cloud, mobile, big data, the Internet of Things (IoT), social media, and other technologies
have disrupted industries and changed customers’ expectations. In our always-on, buy
anything anywhere world, customers want their shopping experiences to be personalized,
dynamic, and convenient.
As a result, many businesses are trying to reinvent themselves. Success in a fast-paced
economy depends on continually adapting and innovating. Companies have to move quickly
to keep up; there’s no time for disjointed technologies and old systems that don’t serve the
customer-obsessed mentality needed to thrive in the digital age.

The all-encompassing data center is a thing of the past. Modern data environments are distributed and include remote and branch offices, mobile devices, and
the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as cloud solutions such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS).
There’s more critical data to back up than ever before. Plus, data silos and fragmented management mean poor visibility, which can make it difficult to comply
with regional data residency and security rules as well as service-level agreements (SLAs).
On-premises data protection has not kept pace. According to a survey by Fujitsu, 45% of IT managers said they had lost data or productivity related to data
protection inefficiency within the last year.1
