Moving To IaaS Is Fundamental To Remaining Competitive, Oracle Study FindsResearch reveals benefits of Cloud Infrastructure established as a clear differentiator

SEOUL, South Korea, Oct. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The proportion of businesses in South Korea reaping the rewards of embracing cloud infrastructure services has increased significantly in the last quarter, according to a global survey of 1,610 IT professionals. Just over two thirds of respondents (69 percent) believe Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) makes it easier for businesses to innovate, a 14 percent increase over last quarter. The research also found that 55 percent of businesses believe IaaS delivers exceptional operational performance in terms of speed and availability, a 19 percent quarter-over-quarter increase.

Over half of respondents (54 percent) found their organisation experienced improved productivity from their migration to cloud, while just under half (45 percent) found their IT teams have greater scope to work on other value-adding projects.

The study also revealed that nearly three quarters of businesses (71 percent) believe that companies not investing in IaaS will struggle to keep up with those that are using it. The index also highlighted that moving to IaaS has significantly cut time to deployment of new applications and services and slashed maintenance costs for a similar number (70 percent).

Chris Chelliah, APAC Group Vice President & Chief Architect, Technology & Cloud, "The responses clearly show that companies are getting increasing levels of benefit from using cloud infrastructure and it is being felt beyond the domain of the IT department. These investments are driving significant improvements in productivity and giving organisations the ability to shift resource to projects that make valuable contributions from those that are just keeping the lights on. The survey also reveals the expectation from respondents that IaaS will help them deliver on transformation and innovation ambitions, which will return even greater ROI. The challenge for the minority of businesses still holding back, is the clear risk of falling behind more agile rivals, and the struggle they will have to catch up."

In addition, 30 percent of respondents say IaaS is helping them disrupt their market and competitors. The findings of the survey echo the benefits that Oracle's Cloud Infrastructure customers are already seeing as a result of the high availability, high performance and cost effective cloud-based infrastructure it delivers.

Organisations including Australian Finance Group, Benchmark, Pernod Ricard Asia, Telesoft, and Total are amongst those who have chosen Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to speed innovation and deliver exceptional customer experiences.
