Cloud delivers 4.01 times the ROI as on-premises

November 5, 2020 - Research U176

In an analysis of 101 ROI case studies published since our last update to this research (Nucleus Research r208 – Cloud now delivers 3.2 times more ROI – December 2017), Nucleus found that cloud technology deployments deliver 4.01 times the ROI as on-premises deployments over the time period from January 2018 to November 2020. Further, cloud deployments allowed the customer organizations to recover the cost of their initial investments 2.5 times faster than for on-premises deployments. We expect this value disparity will continue to grow rapidly as the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically accelerated cloud adoption compared to pre-pandemic levels.
