Over half of enterprises report a significant portion of existing application portfolio is not in cloud, but is built with cloud friendly architectures. Legacy applications remain but it appears they are either slowly being phased out or made ready for a cloud future.

Similarly, a Gartner report found that many enterprises are increasingly trusting SaaS for mission critical applications. Gartner noted that private cloud application growth will be nearly twice that of public growth (46 percent versus 24 percent) over the next two years, while RightScale’s findings show enterprise workloads largely remain in private cloud, while private cloud growth is anticipated to be slower than public.
