As a provider of cloud-based SaaS ERP solutions as well as Business-Process-as-a-Service solutions on the Intacct cloud platform, it always interests us to learn more about trends in cloud adoption among companies and nonprofits of all sizes. So it was especially interesting when one of our customers, Sailpoint, published some results of a survey of 100 of their customers at the Gartner IAM Summit about their plans for cloud adoption. Sailpoint pioneered the identity governance market, and provides an integrated set of cloud-based services, including compliance controls, provisioning, password management, single sign-on and data access governance, all built on the belief that identity is a business enabler.
The survey results further support what we've seen ourselves:
Of the 100 survey respondents, 30 percent plan to transition more of their mission-critical applications to the cloud in the next two years, and a full 50 percent indicated that they will take a cloud-first approach for all IT purchases by 2021.
See the official press release for more information. We at AcctTwo are excited about the important work that Sailpoint is doing in the cloud identity management space, and they are practicing what they preach by running their business systems in the cloud as well.
