You can't expect them to read the whole story
I have seen this headline misquoted in public relations announcements citing a $1 trillion shift to the cloud, as if it occurs annually in each round of IT budgets. The shift takes place over 5 years, and Gartner's way of highlighting it was to aggregate the total from the five years. The amount of shift per year, at the end of five years, is $216 billion, a less catchy figure.
