Are we heading towards the Clouds?
March 16, 2010
There has been awful lot of talk about Cloud Computing and how it’s going to be the next big thing in IT and business applications. However, recent research from Europe tells us that us that while most companies do see the potential benefits of Cloud Computing, many are still unsure of its implementation. The survey carried out by Vanson Bourne for CA, interviewed people from 550 companies in 14 countries across Europe.
