IT decision makers see the benefits of the cloud for their businesses


While security concerns about the cloud are beginning to subside, a recent survey from cloud computing provider Rackspace Hosting found 91 percent of IT decision makers are seeing the cloud in a positive light.

The cloud offers a number of benefits to businesses as it allows for greater mobility, collaboration and efficiency, but in past years, firms have been hesitant to make the shift due to worries about security. By investing in cyberliability insurance, businesses can be protected from any security issues that may arise from using the cloud.

"The world is in the midst of a tectonic shift toward cloud computing that is revolutionizing the way companies do business," said Lanham Napier, CEO of Rackspace. "The survey shows that IT decision makers understand the importance of selecting a cloud provider that empowers their businesses with the systems, products and customer service capabilities to successfully make the transition to the cloud."

According to the research, three out of four businesses prefer to use a cloud service that has strong customer service and technical support despite higher prices. With quality service, businesses can use cloud computing to its maximum potential.
