Technology outsourcing company CSC commissioned a global survey of IT decision makers to find out the motivations behind their move to cloud computing systems and its impacts on their businesses.
33% of respondents cited accessibility to information through multiple devices as the most important reason for their decision to adopt cloud computing, while 21% cited cutting costs as most important.
Other key findings include:
- Few organizations downsized IT after cloud adoption.
- The majority of organizations save money with cloud, but savings are small.
- Nearly all businesses boost improvements in IT performance after cloud adoption.
- Data security concerns do not change significantly after adopting cloud computing.
- Half of U.S. government IT workers say they’ve moved work to the cloud.
