CIOs continue to grow more and more bullish about cloud solutions, with a whopping 92% saying that cloud provides business benefits, according to a recent survey. Nonetheless, IT execs remain concerned over how to avoid SaaS-based data silos. The survey was conducted by Dimensional Research and commissioned by Host Analytics.

The Host Analytics/Dimensional survey queried some 350 CIOs and IT executives on attitudes, trends and challenges pertaining to cloud adoption.

Among the sunnier findings for cloud advocates are these results from CIOs and IT executives:

  • 92% said the adoption of cloud technologies is good for business
  • 67% said cloud technologies help IT deliver better systems for less money
  • 62% said SaaS applications give business stakeholders more ownership of key applications
  • Cloud is gaining a foothold across many corporate departments, including IT (67%), sales (36%), and customer support (35%)

The study also looked at which groups within a company are most benefiting from cloud and/or SaaS adoption. IT professionals are the top beneficiaries, as more than two-thirds of them (67%) said cloud technologies are providing them financial benefits.
