New Survey Finds 77% of Global 2000 Enterprises Considering or Already Moving to the Cloud

replatforming database survey

San Francisco – July 11, 2018 – Datometry, the leader in Adaptive Data Virtualization™ technology, announces the results of its recently concluded Database Replatforming Survey focusing on the drivers and challenges of replatforming databases to the cloud.

Key survey insights include:

  • Respondents identified the urgency to move enterprise databases to the cloud with an 18-month or shorter deadline to adopting cloud databases.
  • The two top reasons to replatform data warehouses to the cloud are cost-cutting initiatives and the need for new features and capabilities.
  • The key challenge in replatforming is the technical effort involved in rewriting existing applications for the new cloud data warehouse.

“The survey results were not a complete surprise because we have been hearing our customers and partners talk of the urgency of adopting cloud databases for the last 18 months. The cloud economics for enterprise IT where it no longer owns and operates technology resulting in significant reductions in CAPEX and OPEX is simply too advantageous for the enterprise to ignore.” says Sonya Pelia, Head of Marketing at Datometry.

Mike Waas, Founder and CEO of Datometry adds: “I am particularly interested to see that the key challenge in replatforming to a cloud data warehouse for our survey respondents is the technical effort required for the replatforming. This speaks to the finding by the analyst firm Gartner that 50% percent of all migrations fail, go over budget, or run late because the effort of rewriting and testing applications to work with the new database is severely underestimated.”

Over 160 respondents answered the survey questions; the respondents included IT executives, database administrators, and analytics and business intelligence gurus from multiple industry verticals including technology, financial, healthcare, government, telecommunications, and industrial among others.
