The Cloud has been a ‘Hot Topic’ consistently now for a few years- and not just for technology geeks! There were early adopters that championed the movement to go Virtual – but this was no small flash in the pan.
Cloud adoption from small business owners to large-scale enterprise corporations has grown exponentially in recent years – there has been a lot of buzz and discussion about the benefits to business.
We know what the major benefits are by now… right? Cost savings, energy savings, efficiency and scalability.
In a recent study of CIOs from Fortune 500 companies, the feedback was staggering:
“Nine out of 10 respondents, for example, say they have received 100% of the savings they expected from their cloud computing projects. In addition, four out of five say their cloud efforts have helped their organizations achieve some sort of competitive advantage, and two-thirds say cloud has helped their organization’s efficiency and effectiveness.” – Forbes.com
It seems The Cloud has delivered on its promises, and the results are now measurable.
