Cloud takes up 10pc of external IT spend, says Gartner

ZDNet - Over a tenth of IT spending on outsourcing during 2010 will have been on external cloud services, according to analyst firm Gartner. "The cloud market is evolving rapidly, with 39 percent of survey respondents worldwide indicating they allocated IT budget to cloud computing as a key initiative for their organisation," said Bob Igou, a research director at Gartner, in the statement. "This is yet another trend that indicates a shift in spending from traditional IT assets such as the datacentre assets and a move towards assets that are accessed in the cloud."
