- Almost three quarters (73 percent) reported that their organization currently has a portion of their computing requirements being handled by the cloud with a majority (48 percent) opting for private cloud over public or hybrid cloud services.
- More than half (51 percent) expect to increase their workloads running in the cloud in the next 12 months, with only four percent expecting to decrease their cloud use over the next year.
