AMD Survey Finds A Major Move To The Cloud

Advanced Micro Devices says that cloud computing technology is maturing at a fast rate, but some businesses still lack the expertise required to deploy the technology properly.

According to the company’s Rise of Cloud Computing report, 70 percent of the respondents said that they were either using or planning to use cloud computing services for hosting applications and store data.

The company based its report (opens in new tab)on surveys of CIOs in public and private sector companies in the US, Europe and Asia.

Around 60 percent of the organisations that are already using cloud computing services were already seeing business value while 92 percent of cloud users stated that infrastructure was the main driver behind their move to cloud computing.

“Based on the findings of this global study, AMD believes it is time for the industry to re-shape the way we think about cloud technology," said Patrick Patla, general manager and vice president, Server and Embedded Divisions at AMD, MarketWire (opens in new tab)reports.

"The findings point to the fact that while the era of cloud computing has arrived, there are radically different attitudes, approaches, concerns and levels of maturity depending on business environment," she added.
