Mobile Devices Now Driving Cloud-Computing Adoption

December 9, 2011 No Comments

Technology giant CSC just released its latest Cloud Usage Index, a survey that looks at the current state of cloud computing. Not only divulging simply interesting facts, the survey found that cloud adoption is being hastened by the desire to access information through multiple devices, marking a clear shift from results of earlier cloud-adoption surveys

Cloud Usage Index

The survey was performed by independent research firm TNS using funding from CSC and asked 3,645 IT decision makers from companies around the world about their current and upcoming cloud-computing situation. The survey results are now available as either a write-up or infographic, at the CSC website.

The most interesting tidbit by far is the fact that 33 percent of the survey’s respondents claimed that the ability to access data on multiple devices was the most important reason to adopt cloud computing. This goes against numerous earlier surveys which always listed improving business performance and cutting costs as the two main reasons to move into the cloud. Both of these other two reasons still made the list as important reasons for cloud adoption, at 21 and 17 percent, respectively.
