Findings from the latest Frost and Sullivan report states the Australian cloud computing market has emerged from the early adopter stage and is now in the early growth stage of adoption by the wider market.
The report shows the strong growth in cloud adoption will continue in 2014 and will taper off as the market reaches a higher state of maturity. “Two thirds of companies that have adopted cloud services believe it has significantly improved their overall business performance. A significant proportion of organisations feel it has enhanced their ability to innovate and explore new business models. The Education, Mining and in particular, Government and Financial Services, have been strong adopters of cloud over the last six to 12 months. The Retail and Manufacturing sectors are seeing strong adoption of cloud based business management applications,” says Phil Harpur, Senior Research Manager, Australia & New Zealand, Frost and Sullivan.
