Cloud Adoption Predicted To Rise by 12% In 2016
A growing number of businesses are likely to consider cloud backup services in the next 12 months, with new research revealing that adoption of this kind of technology will rise by 12 percent by 2016.
According to a Cobweb study of 250 IT professionals, 78 percent of companies currently use more than one cloud-based service and half of those questioned said they intend to move their entire IT operations to the cloud at some point in the future, CBR Online reports.
However, take-up may not be as swift or as easy as many IT managers hope, with the study revealing a few factors that could inhibit the move to the cloud, such as concerns surrounding data privacy and security. Despite this, 99 percent of those asked said they have never had a security breach when operating in the cloud.
This comes after research from the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) found that the take-up rate for cloud computing applications has now reached 84 per cent. Survey participants stated that they think more applications such as email, customer relationship management and data storage will increasingly move to the cloud in the next year, with the CIF predicting that penetration and adoption would rise significantly in the next 12 months.
