Individuals and small businesses have been quick to board the cloud computing train. Enterprises, on the other hand, have lagged a bit behind. This is due to many reasons, one major one being security concerns. There is also the barrier that a lot of companies simply don’t value enterprise application development, which can also hinder growth and cloud adoption.
However, it seems that big businesses are finally finding their way to the cloud. A recent study by Washington, D.C. research firm, Clutch, showed that 90% of enterprises are planning to increase their cloud spend in the coming year.
Implementing cloud computing doesn’t have to mean conducting a complete overhaul. The point of cloud technology is that enterprises can apply it where it works best for them. Many start with small steps and then pick up speed as they gain greater confidence in the technology.
