Cloud Adoption - it's mainstream

07 Jul, 2017 in News

In year's passed the conversation surrounding cloud, moving to the cloud, cloud services and cloud adoption has been on the minds of every IT professional.

Do we need it? Can we do it? How difficult will it be, what is the cost to incur and the cost savings? Looking back on the last year, we see that it's becoming a staple in organizations, not just something on the IT whiteboard.

Hybrid cloud adoption grew 3X in the last year, increasing from 19% to 57% of organizations surveyed.

The buzzword "cloud" is becoming not so much buzz and more mainstream, as seen in some of the research found by the recently published report, Building Trust in a Cloudy Sky: The State of Cloud Adoption and Security(25 pp., PDF, opt-in). Late last year Intel Security surveyed over 2,000 professionals for its annual cloud security research study.

Forbes breaks down the survey nicely in this article, 2017 State Of Cloud Adoption And Security.

Documenting some of the highlights and changes now in the second half of 2017, cloud is reaching from all angles of IT, Voice, Data Center and even Security.
