30% of UK small businesses will look to the cloud
CompTIA (a professional body that represents the IT industry) has recently found that cloud computing use by SMEs in the UK is set to explode over the next 12 months.
The survey, which questioned 400 small businesses, asked SMEs which new technologies they would be adopting and cloud computing came out as the runaway winner.
Nearly half of SMEs in the UK to be using the cloud within 12 months
Thirty percent of SMEs are planning to use a cloud computing solution over the next year according to the research, joining the 18% of small and medium sized enterprises that are already doing so.
This exponential uptake is largely attributable to the twin benefits of cost effectiveness as well as the increased ability to access data and applications remotely.
Cloud computing set to transform the IT landscape for SMEs
Probably the most interesting stats to come out of the survey for me, were those from the businesses already using the cloud.
Of the 18% already on board there was a whopping 93% satisfaction level, with 81% set to increase their usage.
Cloud computing is revolutionising the way businesses conceive of IT. Not only is the cloud looking likely to gain a lot of new users, it is also clearly doing the job for the overwhelming percentage of those businesses already using the technology.
