Over half of partners (53%) say that their customers are benefitting from the scalability, and 42% from the agility, that cloud provides. Keeping costs low is also a priority and partners say that customers using cloud are saving an average of 9.7% from their annual IT budgets.
Different industries are transitioning to the cloud economy at different speeds. IT/telecoms companies are perceived to be adopting cloud computing the fastest (66%), followed by the media/internet (57%). Partners identified the public sector (14%) as showing least inclination to move to cloud.
