Cloud adoption study
Cloud computing is gaining momentum
In April - May 2011 Deloitte and CIOnet performed a cloud adoption survey using the CIOnet Platform in Europe. The objective of the study was to better understand the use and the potential of cloud computing within the CIO Community. The survey confirmed that the business is taking a leading role in adopting cloud. This is because ever more they realise that cloud computing is helping to achieve business goals. It clearly showed that public software-as-a-service (SaaS) is the dominant cloud type in use and that platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) are catching up. The understanding of the market with respect to cloud computing is lacking and confusion exists on the service descriptions. What is nevertheless clear, is that cloud computing is here to stay.
This paper brings futher insights of the current status of cloud computing (in Europe).
