As well as lower costs, business agility, flexibility and ease of use are still the main attractions for using the cloud. European Commission research, which questioned almost 500 companies, showed that over 80 per cent of those who were already using the cloud, saw a reduction in IT costs of between 10 and 20 per cent. 12 per cent saw an impressive 30 per cent or more reduction.

INFOGRAPHIC: Cloud Security Adoption | Future of Cloud Computing and IoT | Scoop.it

Security is a real issue even though it is true that cloud computing is just as safe as traditional systems when it comes to apparent vulnerabilities and security holes. This is because of the nature of cloud computing, the public cloud, there are a lot more people with proximity access to the data. What I mean is that compared to an in-house system where there is virtually no connection to the outside internet, the whole world will now be potentially be able to just walk up to your door, so to speak, in public cloud systems.
