TIFCA’s Client-to-Cloud Ecosystem Report
Drive This First
TIFCA recognizes that the Client-to-Cloud Revolution is a very ambitious vision that will require diverse ecosystem participation. This huge vision requires an achievable beginning while our membership grows and develops.
Our next step was to identify short term objectives to pursue and determine what kind of industry engagement we could expect.
Three Prioritized Objectives
75% of the respondents indicated that they are “interested” or “very Interested” in driving a write-once reach-many device ecosystem. 7% were “neutral” which is another way of saying they could be interested and want to learn more. 7% were “unsure” which means they could be interested, but they don’t fully understand what is being asked. Just 11% had “no interest” at all.
Over 60% of the respondents are either “very interested” or “interested” in helping define deliverables for the ecosystem with a nearly equal balance between the two. 25% were “neutral” which is an indicator that there could be interest. 4% were “unsure” and 11% had “no interest”.
Almost 65% are either “very interested” or “interested” in getting started on general ecosystem development, with 25% being “neutral” and effectively saying there could be interest. Only 11% had “no interest”.
The answers affirm the short-term objectives as being relevant and applicable, though we believe the nature of what each member of the ecosystem does changes how likely they are to connect with a specific objective. For example, a specific topic may be outside of a respondent’s area of expertise and they are more likely to connect with something else.
