“Cloud computing is on the cusp of broad enterprise adoption,” states the Yankee Group in a recently released report.
Sixty percent of firms see cloud computing as enabling business to excel, adds the IT research house in a recent survey of 400 U.S. businesses.
Perhaps a notably telling sign of the cloud’s popularity is the rapid growth of this positive view of cloud computing. The 60% favorable rating is up significantly – from 37% – in a scant twelve months.
How does that positive view seem to play out? Large enterprises lean toward a private cloud while small- and medium-sized business is investigating cloud applications and cloud platform and infrastructure providers.
