CIOs and other top IT managers are more interested than ever in cloud-computing solutions for their enterprise needs, according to a new survey from Savvis. That is because many of them would like to get out of the business of managing their IT infrastructure and are looking to the cloud for outsourcing. But this does not mean that the cloud is getting a "free pass" from senior tech managers. Clear and distinct marketing challenges need to be faced by global cloud providers to overcome doubters, the report concludes. In addition, security dynamics must be transformed from inhibitors to assets. Still, it is clear from the survey responses that the vast majority of CIOs and top IT managers fully expect to be deploying some kind of cloud-computing solutions in the future. This independent report was commissioned by Savvis and conducted by Vanson Bourne. More than 650 CIOs, CTOs, IT directors and other top IT decision-makers were interviewed in the U.S., U.K., and Singapore. Here are some key findings.
