As organizations grow globally, CIOs and other senior managers must be aware of international tech trends in order to stay competitive in the international marketplace. A recent report released by CA Technologies, the "2012 CA Technologies Channel Index," finds that the interest in cloud technologies is growing around the world based on responses from survey participants in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Customers are turning to cloud solutions - public, private or hybrid - to increase stability and agility, while reining in costs. "Businesses see the cloud model as a good response to business and market demands," says Marco Comastri, the CA Technologies president overseeing its operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. "They're using the cloud to deliver new applications and services to internal and external users in a fast and cost-effective way, in turn helping drive innovation and generate new revenue streams." More than 900 CA Technologies channel partners throughout EMEA took part in the research.
