Savvis Study : 75 Percent of Companies Will Implement Enterprise Cloud
Category : General 30 Nov 2010 11:45 AM | Industry News
The study found that IT usually identifies projects and areas that could benefit from cloud and informs the business. However, 23 percent of respondents reported that business leaders sometimes bypass IT and purchase solutions on their own.
“This independent study validates the industry notion that enterprises want customizable cloud solutions that go beyond the application level and comprehensively address requirements such as security and service levels,” said Bryan Doerr, chief technology officer at Savvis.
However, almost a quarter of respondents said that business leaders will purchase cloud services without consulting IT.
Spending on hosted, on-demand and cloud-based software is expected to increase over the next year according to 64 percent of respondents.
For enterprises looking to move mission-critical applications to the cloud, security and privacy is a major concern. 62 percent of those surveyed consider security a critical issue when evaluating cloud solutions.
According to the report, 60 percent of respondents have difficulty finding a cloud computing solution suitable for their company.
