CIO’s are tasked with the challenge of determining the best way to store massive amounts of data in a safe, easy-to-access, cost-effective manner. Organizations can choose to purchase and deploy on-premises enterprise storage systems, store their data with an external cloud computing service, or they can form hybrid models by combining to two.
In this post, we’ve put our focus on cloud computing and compiled 20 statistics that every CIO should look to store in their memory for future reference or for ground to stand on when bringing a cloud proposal to the rest of their executive teams.
18.56% of survey respondents trust the ability of cloud providers to protect the sensitive and confidential data entrusted to them (Tweet this)
19.59% of all new spending on cloud computing services originates from North American enterprises, a trend projected to accelerate through 2016 (Tweet this)
20.38% of enterprises surveyed break out cloud computing budgets, while 60% include cloud-related spending as part of their enterprise-wide IT budgets (Tweet this)
Back it up with numbers
While these stats don’t provide and exhaustive view of the current cloud computing landscape, we hope it showed its emergence in today’s information technology landscape. As a CIO, the next time you approach the rest of the executive team to discuss cloud storage, take a few (or all) of these stats with you to back up your argument.
