Our Poll: When Will You Enter the Cloud?
This week, we ask you: Is your organization planning to implement cloud computing solutions soon?
So, if you aren't on the cloud, should you be? If so, when? To give you some context, we turn to Steven Song, Security Business Manager at Cisco Systems, Inc.
"Cloud computing is not a hype," says Song. "It is here today and it will continue to grow. A Forrester 2011 research study suggests that the global cloud computing market will reach $241 billion by 2020 across public and private cloud markets."
So if you aren't on the cloud, the time to dive in is now. "The longer businesses delay their participation in cloud computing, the more they'll fall behind their peers and competition," Song reiterates.
So when will you go virtual? Tell us in the poll on the right-hand side of this page. Or respond in the commenting forums below.
