A new study on cloud computing use by small and medium sized companies from Exact and Pb7 Research finds two surprising results.
The first has to do with security. Typically security is cited as the number one concern for why businesses avoid the cloud; but surprisingly, the Exact report found that security is also the number one reason cited by cloud adopters for choosing the cloud. It seems like some sort of love/hate relationship. The second interesting result is that, in general, businesses using the cloud are better off financially compared to peer businesses that aren’t using the cloud.
