European organizations have already won a gold medal when it comes to implementing cloud. They’re poised in pole position, with about four out of 10 workloads in the cloud, overtaking their US peers who stand at three out of 10.

Whilst they certainly take gold for getting onto cloud, getting value out of cloud is a different story. Our recent research found that, at the current pace of investment, it will take European companies three years to catch up with their US peers when it comes to achieving bigger business goals with the cloud. Their focus is on reducing operating costs, rather than launching new services or improving areas such as sustainability. That could mean lower revenues in the long term due to a lack of innovation and outdated services, and a worse experience for customers.
