Organisations indicate that the top benefits that they have realised as current Cloud users are cost savings, access to data (anytime, anywhere and on nearly all devices) and improved security.
According to a study done by Forbes of the businesses already using the Cloud, 73% reported a reduction in the cost of their IT infrastructure, 58% stated that moving to the Cloud provided better control of their data and 57% say that moving data to the cloud has resulted in better security.
You can’t talk about cloud computing without talking about cost savings. Kristof Kloeckner, IBM’s CTO for Cloud Computing, has estimated that using the cloud reduces IT labour costs by up to 50% and improves capital utilisation by 75%. By moving to the Cloud, not only are IT costs are cut dramatically but your business can benefit from the opportunity to increase collaboration and productivity, and to grow with technology instead of struggling to stay up-to-date with the ever advancing technology.
