Cloud Usage Index – Infographic

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.
