Adoption of services like cloud backup and other cloud computing applications are appearing to be popular for companies in the UK, with new research revealing that take-up rate has reached 84 percent. And in fact, since the first study was carried out in 2010, the adoption rate has climbed by 75 percent.
According to the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF), 78 percent of those asked said they have adopted two or more services, with the organisation now predicting that both penetration and adoption will increase sizeably over the course of the year.
