The Economics of the Cloud will Soak the Unprepared.

  • Shifting from CapEx to OpEx will impact earnings metrics including EBITDA

    • Cloud investments hit your income statement as service is consumed

    • CapEx investments depreciate over multiple years

  • Asset Lifecycle Plans are essential to avoiding risk of sharp cost increases

    • Overall costs will continue to rise until legacy costs are off books

Why is the Business Case for Cloud so Vital?
  • Oracle CEO Mark Hurd said it plainly: "We get at least 3x more revenue on a like-for-like basis when a customer moves from on premise support to our cloud."

  • The suppliers are playing a long-term game of land & expand. If history is any guide,  no group is better at expanding its footprint and wallet share than IT suppliers

What did I miss? Our Cloud Deals are all Cheaper than On-premise.
