Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) has conducted extensive research investigating the integration and management challenges created by the convergence of on-premise and public Cloud hosted applications. Research conducted in mid-2012 uncovered some compelling statistics about the role of Cloud integration in today's companies:

  • Nearly 50% of the companies surveyed have already deployed tiered transactions spanning public Cloud and on-premise computing environments (one form of "hybrid Cloud")
  • Approximately 35% have integrated (or are in the process of integrating) multiple Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.

As one IT professional put it, "Everything is connected to everything." Because of this fact, any discussionof public Cloud as a standalone technology is outmoded. Few modern on-premise applications exist as"silos," and the same is true of Cloud-delivered applications.
