While all the hype around cloud computing would suggest that everyone is already doing it, the reality is just a bit behind. There's a learning curve for most organizations that is holding back cloud adoption but in turn presents opportunities for the OpenStack community to accelerate them into the cloud era. In this session, Forrester Research analysts James Staten and Charlie Dai will detail the true picture of enterprise cloud adoption worldwide and here in Asia using fresh Forrsights survey data and qualitative analysis from enterprise client conversations. In this session you will learn:

* The true pace of adoption of Infrastructure as a Service (both public and private clouds)

* What challenges are holding enterprises back from wider adoption (and what you can do about it)

* Where are the sweet spots for enterprise adoption (and how to best capitalize on them)
