Juniper Network research shows Cloud Computing is the popular choice


A recent research study commissioned by Juniper Networks shows that 25% of all medium to large European companies have recently evaluated cloud computing as a way of delivering a flexible, efficient and scalable network service delivery model.

Cloud computing, hosted or software as a service (SaaS) is a type of computing that allows organisations to subscribe to various services and IT solutions over the web without the need to directly own or maintain the applications.

Benefits of Cloud Computing
In addition to cost savings staff also don't need to have detailed knowledge or expertise making cloud solutions easy and fast to implement. Plus SaaS and cloud computing services are dynamically scalable and offer companies the latest innovations at a very affordable cost. Organisations who switched to cloud services can avoid capital expenditure on hardware, software and services paying only for the resources they use.

Juniper found that 20% of the highest achieving firms were considering cloud computing this year and interestingly 25% of the firms which said they were struggling as a result of the recession would be considering it. This is a testament to the cost savings cloud computing is able to provide.

Gert-Jan Schenk, senior vice president for EMEA at Juniper Networks, said,

“In either case, history suggests that those organisations more open to change will adapt businesses models to adopt the advantages of cloud computing and maximise their chances of long-term success.”

Benelux businesses were taking the most proactive approach to reviewing cloud technology, with 26% considering it against 18% in the UK, 15% in Germany and 8% in France.

For its research Juniper Networks commissioned the Loudhouse consultancy to question 500 IT decision-makers in medium-to-large enterprises (1,000 employees or more) in the UK, France, Russia, Germany and the Benelux.
