Half the organisations in the UK have already used a cloud service says study

Almost half (48 per cent) of all organisations in the UK are already using some form of cloud service, says a survey by the Cloud Industry Forum

Er, yes, that would be Hotmail or Google or Amazon wouldn't it?

Larger companies are more likely to use them, continues the study by the Cloud Industry Forum. 

Hang on, only half of the survey has used Hotmail or Google apps? Surely not!

The research, conducted in the first two months of 2011, polled 450 senior IT and business decision-makers in enterprises, small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) and public sector organisations in the UK. As well as 200 respondents from the channel.

For this survey to have any meaning, surely, they need to define what they mean by cloud computing. Are Google apps and Hotmail and Yahoo included? It doesn't say.

This was first published in April 2011
