The Economic and Strategic Benefits of Cloud Computing

According to a Computer Economics survey, organizations that have fully or largely migrated to the cloud save on average more than 15 percent in IT spending as a percentage of revenue. Savings come not only from a reduction in data center spending, but also from lower IT personnel costs.

The cost savings, combined with strategic benefits in speed, scalability, and agility, argue in favor of organizations moving aggressively to the cloud.
