Next Cloud Computing Adoption Is Slow but Steady-6 Next

Presently, only 5 percent of IT decision makers have been able to migrate at least half of their total applications to the cloud. By the end of 2012, that number is expected to significantly rise, as more than one in five (20 percent) will have deployed over half of their total applications to the cloud.

The buzz around cloud computing makes it seem as though everyone is making the shift to the cloud, but the reality is that cloud migration is more measured.

A new global survey of 1,300 IT professionals, conducted by Cisco, finds that not only does it take about six months to deploy a cloud application, but a fair number said they would be more likely to see a UFO in the next six months than they were to complete a cloud migration project.
