The Right Time for Cloud: IT Channel Insight Releases Cloud Leaders Study

Texas City, TX, December 04, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Leaders in the cloud industry agree that four main factors are contributing to the current explosion of cloud-based services.

Cloud is enabling business innovation - something which is crucial for the market to flourish. Mike McClurg, VP of IBM Global Midmarket Sales summarized this succinctly: “Cloud enables companies to reinvent and transform the way they do business.”

The business case for hosted solutions is undeniable, not only can the savings can be significant, but in such a volatile environment, the ability to add and reduce services as needed is invaluable.

Businesses are changing the way they operate in ways that benefit from online services, the advent of BYOD and the shift of purchasing control to employees, rather than the IT department, are all helping cloud computing’s expansion.

The infrastructure, hardware and software have caught up with cloud’s needs. The shift towards software-defined data center (SDDC) removes the need for expensive hardware, working on robust software to manage it instead.

Despite the fact that cloud computing is a market that is growing rapidly and there have been several studies investigating the response of users, no one seems to have bothered asking the businesses that are driving this growth what they think about it.

In a ground-breaking research project which went straight to the pulse of business cloud computing, IT Channel Insight interviewed the cloud service leaders, including Google, Microsoft, IBM, HP, Salesforce, Asigra, Axcient, CA Tech, Citrix, Dell, Rackspace, Red Hat, Shoretel, StorageCraft, Symantec and VMware to find out what they think about the current state of the cloud market, why this is the right time for cloud computing and what lies in the future of software and infrastructure as a service.
