Avanade recently released their 2009 Cloud Computing survey.
Joe McKendrick has provided some good commentary on some of the key scenarios in his blog post earlier this week. What’s clear from the survey is:
a) there is a lot (and growing) interest in cloud
b) it’s still very early days
Companies in general are not running their business in the cloud just yet:
“Only 5 percent of companies surveyed currently rely solely on cloud computing technologies for their IT needs”
I expect even that 5% may really be lower if you drill into it and fully consider client technologies. However cloud is certainly forming part of the application mix for early-adoption scenarios as companies take more of a hybrid approach and mix of on-premise and cloud services.
