Next Five Surprising Stats on Cloud App Adoption-2 Next

More than half of IT pros have adopted SaaS apps.

Fifty-four percent of IT pros in the U.S. have currently implemented SaaS applications in one form or another, and 14 percent plan to implement them within the next six months. Amongst these IT pros, the most commonly used SaaS applications include Google Apps (46 percent), Dropbox (45 percent) and Microsoft Office 365 (43 percent). The rapid increase in SaaS application adoption makes sense given all of the advantages, from the anytime, anywhere accessibility and the ability to foster greater collaboration, to the ease of installation and wallet-friendly price tag.

More and more companies are transitioning to software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications such as Google Apps, Salesforce and Zoho. In fact, analyst firm Gartner estimates SaaS sales in 2010 reached $10 billion, and will more than double by 2015 to a projected $21.3 billion.

Cloud-to-cloud backup provider Backupify recently teamed up with Spiceworks to survey more than 200 IT professionals and gather their insights on data in the cloud — from the SaaS apps where it lives to if and how it’s being backed up. Some of the results may surprise you.
