Interop ITX and InformationWeek Surveyed Business Technology Decision-Makers and the Results Show a Powerful Migration to the Cloud

In 2016, technology professionals at organizations that use or plan to use cloud computing were recruited to respond to a survey conducted by Interop ITX and InformationWeek. Respondents held IT management titles such as CIO, CTO, VP of IT, IT manager, or IT director. 4 in 10 respondents were from large companies with 1,000 or more employees.

Survey Results:


  1. Greater scalability
  2. Higher performance
  3. Better and/or faster access to technology resources
  4. Cost savings
  5. Faster time to market
  6. Improved business continuity
  7. Increased IT staff efficiency
  8. Improved employee productivity
  9. Shift of cost allocation from capex to opex
  10. Expanded geographic reach

A general trend toward obtaining more IT services from the cloud is also evident in the results. Two years ago, only 20% of respondents predicted that they would get half or more of IT services from the cloud. That number has almost doubled, increasing to 39% of all respondents in our survey this year – Interop ITX
