Companies embracing the Cloud

Information Age, along with Star polled 219 readers, mainly IT managers from UK, and researched companies’ perspective on cloud and whether they believe adapting to cloud will lead to growth.

Out of the surveyed, 70% have adopted or are planning to implement the virtualisation of internal infrastructure. 30% of the respondents have implemented cloud-based backup and recovery in their businesses, and 15% plan to, in the coming year. This is more than any other technology listed.

Information Age reports that organisations that were expecting growth are likely to shift to the cloud-based technologies. Bigger organisations (£100m+) have almost universally embraced virtualisation and SaaS. Small and medium businesses are more likely to implement cloud-based email.
