(BUSINESS WIRE) – NetApp (NASDAQ: NASDAQ: NTAP), a global data-centric cloud-based software company, has released the findings of its annual Cloud Infrastructure Report, based on a survey of public cloud business and IT makers. The report, released by NetApp subsidiary Spot and supplementing the annual survey CloudChecker conducted earlier after its acquisition by NetApp, sheds light on the current state of cloud management and how organizations are working to improve their environments.

One of the main trends highlighted in the report is that although companies continue to accelerate the acceptance of cloud solutions, many companies still believe that these solutions do not improve their infrastructure effectively. Companies address this dilemma by developing internal programs such as “cloud centers of excellence” (CCOOs), financing and operating programs, cloud procurement commitments, tools and external assistance (eg managed service providers). While many respondents in the survey indicated that they are still mature in these areas, those who have successfully deployed and scaled down software report improvements in resilience, efficiency, and management in their cloud computing.

“The results show that despite companies rapidly adopting the cloud, IT companies continue to look for ways to increase the value of investments in the cloud and return on investment,” said Anthony Lee, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Cloud, NetApp. Organizations demonstrate that the costs of cloud, security, automation, and resource optimization will remain a focus, and cloud-focused companies that are often successful will implement the right strategies, find technology solutions, and build relationships with partners to help manage costs. and reduce complexity. ”

The most prominent findings of the Cloud Infrastructure Report 2022 prepared by Spot, a subsidiary of NetApp:

Cloud management and costs are still a work in progress

  • Confidence in vision for public cloud costs has declined in recent years; The percentage of respondents who are “extremely” confident in 2022 has dropped to 21 percent from 31 percent in 2021.

  • 62 percent of respondents will focus on cost management in 2022.

  • Ninety-six percent of the survey respondents considered FinOps to be essential for cloud success, while only 10 percent of the survey respondents said they had mature experience with the program itself.

As investment in public cloud infrastructure deepens and the number of cloud users matures, the business value of these resources needs to be carefully considered. The continued focus on improving cost management this year and the role of FinOps in conducting this study is the key point for large organizations.

The scope of cloud operations management will grow in 2022

  • Transformation targets for 2022 include increasing the use of cloud technology (63 percent), migrating additional services to the cloud (52 percent) and optimizing cloud costs (50 percent).

  • Ninety percent of respondents reported that they own or plan to own a Cloud Center of Excellence (“CCOE”).

  • Sixty-one percent of those who currently own a cloud center of excellence say their responsibilities will increase in 2022.

Even after migrating to the cloud, companies need to continue to take additional steps to optimize their cloud investments. Firms with more mature experience with a cloud center of excellence reported that they see greater benefit and value compared to those with less stable cloud centers of excellence.

Managed service providers play a key role in cloud operations

  • 71 percent of respondents use a managed service provider for their cloud operations.

  • 100 percent of companies working with a managed service provider for cloud operations indicate that they have benefited from this relationship.

  • Eighty-three percent of companies working with a managed service provider for cloud operations rely on those providers for their FinOps implementation.

As cloud service providers take on a more significant leadership role in the cloud environment industry for their customers, IT companies report seeing greater value; This will reflect the impact of managed service providers’ investments in the development of their cloud operating services such as cost optimization, security, compliance and asset management.


In February 2022, an online survey was sent to independent sources of IT companies and commercial stakeholders responsible for public cloud infrastructure such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. The survey included 305 respondents who represented a wide range of roles, company sizes, sectors and job levels. This study included repeated questions from 2017, 2019 and 2021 with the aim of verifying changing trends.
