Click through for results from a cloud computing survey conducted by Hubspan.

Depending on who you ask, you get a different definition of cloud computing. But despite all the hype and controversy, cloud computing is taking on a life of its own. In a survey of over 200 customers, Hubspan, a provider of business integration and workflow services in the cloud, found that the vast majority of the respondents said cloud computing is a strategic direction for their company. But at the same time, it’s also clear from the survey that definitions of cloud computing vary widely. It’s that lack of understanding of cloud computing, coupled with internal IT inertia and a lack of budget, that is slowing down the move to cloud computing. And about the one thing that everybody seems to be able to agree on is that security is a primary cause of concern.
