CIOs know, you know, I know that organizations need to utilize Cloud-based applications and infrastructure so that they are digitally competitive. Why are perceived budget and security concerns stymying digital initiatives?
The path to cloud computing has turned into a highway. But, many CIOs / senior executives are not riding that highway. A new report from cloud provider Canopy, is based on a survey of 950 CIOs and other key executives.
