Companies with multicloud services are outperforming their peers on a number of metrics — and achieving the key objectives that led them to the cloud services model.

Take a look at the IT ecosystem of any company today and there’s a good chance you’ll find it includes offerings from several cloud services providers. That’s certainly the case at mid- to large-sized companies with at least 500 employees, according to a recent survey conducted by IDG Research. The survey of 100 senior IT professionals found that 59% are already multicloud adopters — that is, using computing and storage services from two or more cloud providers. Another 31% of respondents say they plan to become multicloud organizations in the coming 12-24 months, with only 10% still in the “consideration” phase.

The survey results also reveal interesting insights into the drivers behind multicloud adoption. The perennial desire to reduce IT costs remains important, but the respondents rate two other factors as more critical: improving operational speed and agility, and fostering better IT and business alignment.
