The Internet has undergone drastic improvements over the last 15 years. Consider what the Internet looked like in the year 2000—a time before the mainstream use of smartphones or terms like “IoT” and “cloud computing” were commonplace.
We’re all hearing how enterprise cloud adoption is on the rise. But what exactly does that mean? To help answer any burning cloud questions you might have, we put our heads together and came up with a set of impactful statistics that speak to not only who is adopting the cloud, but why you should consider going all in with your cloud strategy if you haven’t yet. These statistics are presented in our latest Cloud Adoption infographic below.
For starters, 45 percent of enterprises worldwide are now running production-level cloud computing applications. Research also shows that 29 percent of North American enterprises and 27 percent of European enterprises are in the discovery and evaluation phase of cloud computing. Across the board, a large chunk of global enterprises have factored a “formal cloud computing plan” as part of their overall IT business strategy, with the majority saying they would recommend cloud computing to colleagues or peers.

As a matter of fact, though the weather kept them at home, they’re productively working—benefitting your business even if your offices are unreachable due to high winds, loss of power, flooding or any number of other detrimental weather conditions.
Your business might even see greater productivity than normal when climatic changes keep your workers at home. Our most recent infographic on remote workers shows that 65 percent of employees report being more productive when working from home. So, if you’re a large business (with 2,500 or more employees) but not one of the 77 percent globally already allowing their employees to work remotely, you might want to revise your policy.
