NEWS: “Which Apps Should You Move to the Cloud? 5 Guidelines”

image CIO Magazine recently published an article discussing the motivations of executives in the area of cloud computing.  An interesting point became evident.

“…Business agility, not cost savings, is the leading reason U.S. companies are interested in cloud computing, according to a survey of 500 senior-level IT and business-unit managers Sand Hill released in March. Forty nine percent of respondents listed business agility as their most important goal; 46 percent listed cost efficiency. The No. 3 response — freeing IT resources to focus on innovation — got less than half that support, with 22 percent.”
