HashiCorp 2023 State of Cloud Strategy Survey
Cloud maturity drives operational efficiency
The third annual HashiCorp State of Cloud Strategy Survey reveals the continued evolution of enterprise cloud strategy. The 2021 survey welcomed enterprises to the multi-cloud era, demonstrating the prevalence of a common multi-cloud operating model. The 2022 results reiterated those findings and underscored how a multi-cloud approach is delivering meaningful business value.
This year, the State of Cloud Strategy Survey focuses on operational cloud maturity — defined not by the amount of cloud usage, but by adoption of a combination of technology and organizational best practices at scale, covering infrastructure, security, networking, applications, and their use of platform teams. For 2023, we once again commissioned Forrester Consulting to perform the survey. In addition, we worked with Forrester to develop a cloud maturity model for describing where organizations are in their cloud adoption journey: low maturity, those experimenting with these practices; medium maturity, organizations standardizing their use of these practices; and high maturity, organizations that are scaling these practices broadly.
The results were clear: Organizations demonstrating the most maturity are also the ones unlocking the most value from their cloud efforts. Mature cloud practices were strongly correlated with positive business outcomes with respect to speed, risk, and efficiency.
