"Johnson & Johnson is moving aggressively to the cloud, aiming to have 85% of its applications in cloud systems from Amazon.com Inc., Microsoft Corp. and NTT Communications Corp. by 2018. The health care and medical devices company is also shutting down or consolidating 40% of existing software applications, to cut spending on technology maintenance and streamline operations, said Stuart McGuigan, chief information officer.Johnson & Johnson Targets 85% of Apps in Cloud by 2018 - CIO Journal. - WSJ
The company is about midway to achieving the 85% goal, Mr. McGuigan said. Last year, Johnson & Johnson turned off its last mainframe, “which is not something I was sure I’d see in my lifetime: A Fortune 100 company with absolutely no mainframe footprint,” he said."
