More companies see cloud as a transformational technology

Do you need any more confirmation that cloud computing is the way forward? Well, just in case we did, the Yankee Group has chipped in with a survey to show how firmly that the technology is entering into companies' consciousness.

According to the research company, 57 percent of US enterprises do see cloud as a technology that drives business transformation and innovation, while only eight percent see it as hype or as a technology that has no place in their business.

Rather interestingly, enterprises place more trust in traditional vendors such as VMware, HP and Cisco and traditional integrators such as Accenture, rather than the new generation of Web 2.0 suppliers. More than half of the respondents opted for the traditional approach, as opposed to just 17 percent who thought that the likes of Google and Amazon would provide the way forward. Hosting and telecoms companies are similarly not seen as the people to lead the way to cloud computing.

The survey found that production-ready applications were most likely to feature in enterprise cloud deployments, although application testing and storage weren't far behind.
