CIOs' Appreciation of the Cloud Keeps Growing

The CIO View
CIOs report a wide range of reasons for adopting cloud applications, including compliance requirements (58%), better value (53%) and competitive advantage (51%).

While business executives clearly forced the cloud computing issue, a new global survey of 327 business executives and CIOs conducted by Dimension Research on behalf of Host Analytics, a provider of financial applications in the cloud, finds that CIOs have developed a greater appreciation for the value of cloud computing that goes well beyond costs. CIOs now find that cloud computing helps them not only save money, but also address compliance issues while also achieving a sustainable competitive advantage.
