CIOs warming (and moving) to Cloud technology

Survey findings suggest a heightened optimism by CIOs concerning the value and benefits of Cloud tech

Such is the case with a new body of research-underwritten by Host Analytics, a Redwood City, Calif.-based provider of cloud-based corporate management (CPM) software-and mined this past May from web-based interviews with 348 CIOs and IT professionals by Dimensional Research, a boutique researcher based in nearby Sunnyvale.

The findings suggest a heightened optimism by CIOs concerning the value and benefits of cloud technology. Indeed, chief among Dimensional's results is the assertion by 92 percent of CIOs and IT professionals participating in the survey that cloud technology is good for business, with 67 percent contending that it helps deliver better systems for less money. Such is CIOs' rising enthusiasm for the cloud that it outstrips even that of their IT staff, as 81 percent of IT managers believe the cloud presents a business benefit.
