IT Departments Turn to Cloud Computing

IT Departments Turn to Cloud Computing

In order to maintain quality of corporate accounting and executive jobs, it's essential that IT departments work to make systems run smoothly, efficiently and reliably, which is why many are turning to cloud computing.

An IDC survey revealed that corporations in the U.S. are striving to address issues in IT with cloud-based solutions. Many are turning to private over public clouds because of security reasons. Forty percent of survey respondents have employed private cloud services while only 29 percent rely on private or hybrid solutions.

Cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) solutions were a top priority for respondents.

"As the U.S. cloud services market continues to mature, enterprises find that overall business impact and productivity gains from the cloud are as significant as achieving cost reductions," said David Tapper, IDC vice president of outsourcing and offshore services market research.

According to CRN, Oracle, a major cloud provider, is offering new services in development, messaging, financial reporting, budgeting and planning. Oracle's offer not only provides IT departments with another option for cloud implementation, but is in line with the increased use of cloud computing by American enterprises.
