@cloudtweaks @mthiele10 You're correct, my apologies. I actually meant to reference it as 60%. Most of the cloud/infra people I've spoken to think the year 2020 is likely to see no more than about 30% pub cloud adoption. So, I'm just saying that 60% adoption for (pub & priv) by 2016 seems aggressive. But in truth, it's anyone's guess at this point.

The adoption percentage in this infographic is significantly higher than most industry folks would suggest. In a recent Cloud2020 event, most of the folks suggested adoption of no more than 20-30% by 2020. Also, a cloud market value of $60 billion doesn't make sense. If you were to assume that infrastructure costs are 1/10 of all IT costs and the current market for IT globally is $4 trillion, then even without growth you'd be looking at $400 million.
