CompTIA: Companies Rethinking Cloud Options

E-mail Print PDF

While the vast majority of companies use cloud computing, more organisations are becoming increasingly "refined and savvy in the technology they chose," the CompTIA Trends in Computing study reveals.

Cloud COmputingAccording to the study, while over 90% of the 500 companies surveyed on July 2016 claim to use some form of cloud computing, more companies place themselves in the non-critical use category (38% in 2016, up from 27% in 2014) rather than full production stage (33% vs 42%). The majority has been using the cloud for between 1 to 5 years, with just 6% claiming to have been using cloud solutions for over 5 years. Another 23% has used the cloud for less than a year.

“A quick glance at this data could lead to the conclusion that companies are walking backward,” the organisation says. “The reality is that the cloud market is undergoing refinement as users gain greater appreciation and understanding of what cloud computing entails.”
