The study shows that multicloud deployments are here to stay, and investments look to increase over the next two years.

Budgets for staffing, training and investments in multicloud strategies are on the rise, causing organizations to add new expertise and skills around maintenance, implementation and cost optimization. Almost 90 percent of organizations predict they’ll maintain or increase their investment and staffing for multicloud deployments over the next two years. Specifically, 87 percent will maintain or increase training investment and 88 percent will maintain or increase investment in managed service support.


“Forrester’s new study confirms that organizations are investing in and adopting multicloud deployments for their mission-critical applications to derive significant improvements in agility, performance and cost savings,” said Joy Corso, Chief Marketing Officer, Virtustream.

“With the market’s continuing evolution to multicloud, IT decision makers are either hiring or turning to companies with deep expertise in end-to-end migration planning and services as well as deep expertise in automated, secure, highly scalable and high-performance cloud services for their mission-critical enterprise applications.”
