Research indicates Cloud services continue to grow in UK

Research indicates Cloud services continue to grow in UK

posted in Redstor ● 6 Jul 2012

The most recent research project undertaken by the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF), conducted across 250 UK-based organisations, shows that 61 per cent are currently using Cloud-based services, with a 92 percent satisfaction level.The last time the CIF investigated cloud adoption (January 2011), the figure was a full 27 points lower indicating rapid grow in the use of cloud services by UK organisations.Interestingly, the Jan 2011 research indicated the public sector was lagging behind the private sector in terms of cloud adoption (49 per cent and 56 per cent respectively). The most recent research indicates a dramatic increase in public sector cloud adoption bringing them to parity with the private sector  (62 percent and 61 percent respectively).In terms of future growth, of the 39 percent of respondents not using Cloud services today, around one in four plan to do so in the coming year. Organisations that do not use Cloud and have no concrete plans to, are positive/not closed to the idea.  This roughly reflects the last survey where 17 per cent said “Yes” and 59 per cent said “Possibly”. Broken down by sector and size, public sector organisations and SMEs appear to be the most dynamic sectors for growth in the next 12 months, with 34 per cent and 30 per cent respectively.Organisational satisfaction, which stands at 92 per cent, remains high. This satisfaction rate is testament to the stated intention of most organisations to migrate more business functions to the Cloud.Just over three quarters (76 per cent) of respondents currently using Cloud services expect to increase their use over the next 12 months, slightly up from the previous figure, which stood at 73 per cent. Email services, data storage services and data back-up services emerged as the areas most likely to benefit from this expected increase.The research also continued to show that the primary reason for the adoption of cloud services is the flexible model of delivery (71 per cent), as well as scalability (66 per cent) and the low cost of adoption (58 per cent). Once again operational cost savings where not seen as the major driver, however it is increasingly important to the majority of respondents (52 per cent).Redstor, a specialist provider of cloud services such as Online Backup, Centralised Device Management, E-Safety and Mobile Data Protection understands the needs of organisations looking to utilise cloud services. In order for them to be comfortable transitioning to the Cloud, it’s important for them to have confidence both in the service and in the service provider. In order for this to be achieved the supplier must be professionally certified with a long, well documented track record and a lot of referenceability.As an ISO 9001 and 27001 certified company with over 8 years of experience in providing Cloud services,  a network of over 130 partners and many customer references and case studies, Redstor is well placed to fulfil these needs.
