INTRODUCTION TO THE CLOUD ADOPTION AND RISK REPORT
In our professional lives, we all seek to make more data-driven decisions. We know that logical decisions made with complete information yield better results than those based on conjecture or suspicion. To that end, Skyhigh Networks produces a quarterly “Cloud Adoption and Risk (CAR) Report” that provides key data metrics pertaining to the use of cloud in the enterprise. This data is valuable and has proven interesting to those enabling (IT), securing (Security), using (Employees), analyzing (Analysts), and covering (Journalists) cloud in the enterprise. What makes this report unique is that it’s based on hard, empirical data. Rather than relying on surveys alone that show only what people think is happening, we base our findings on actual usage data collected from customers throughout the world. You’ll notice we have adopted a new format for easier consumption in this, our 5th quarterly Cloud Adoption and Risk Report. Share your thoughts with us and enjoy the data!
THE BASICS: STATISTICS ON CLOUD ADOPTION AND RISK
With every CAR Report, we include the data from more and more companies, making the statistics and findings richer every quarter. This quarter’s findings are based on anonymized data collected from over 10.5 million enterprise employees across all major verticals – Education, Financial Services, Food & Beverage, Healthcare, High-Tech, Media, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Retail, and Utilities.
