Who Crushes Hardest on the Cloud: Business or IT?

September 25, 2011


The Cloud is like the cool kid in the cafeteria.  You can’t get two words in without it coming up, and everyone wants to know what it will do next.  These are the results of surveying more than 600 companies in 2010 in research led by the London School of Economics.  To the business, cloud promises cost savings and speed in implementation.  IT seems to agree, just a little less enthusiastically.  This echos what I encounter in the field.  The unwillingness to make a big upfront invest in systems and implementation is driving finance functions to eagerly explore and engage the cloud (with their IT groups trailing along, a little less eagerly).  You can read the whole research here on Accenture’s website.
