Although the cloud has been adopted widely, there are nuances in terms of how it actually is employed. The use of private clouds, however they are defined, continues to exceed the adoption of public clouds, suggests a new survey conducted by IT industry association CompTIA. At the same time, however, the use of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications is off the chart. The survey, based on a poll of 500 IT and business professionals, finds that while there are a lot of good reasons to move between clouds, doing so can be difficult. The study confirms that organizations are most in need of integration specialists and IT professionals that have the skills to build a private cloud. For solution providers, cloud computing is clearly a game-changer—creating both digital disruption as well as major opportunities. The challenge lies in sizing up the cloud maturity of any given potential customer. Here Channel Insider examines key takeaways from the study.
