This whitepaper was developed by the IBM Institute for Business Value as part of an ongoing series of executive reports. These reports develop fact-based strategic insights around critical public and private sector issues. When discussing cloud solutions with my clients, I find myself continually referring back to this in-depth report.
The IBM study surveyed 572 business and technology executives around the world to understand how organisations are using cloud today and how they plan to use it in the future.
According to the report, “Recent technology and social connectivity trends have created a perfect storm of opportunity for companies to embrace the power of cloud to optimise, innovate and disrupt business models”.
In fact, the survey found almost 75% of respondents had already piloted, adopted or implemented the cloud and 90% of organisations expected to do so in 3 years. But despite this widespread adoption of the cloud, its potential for driving business innovation remains virtually untapped.
Adopting the cloud allows companies to optimise their IT infrastructure and create new markets and revenue streams. This is the true power of cloud computing and the paper explains this ability beautifully.
