Why Read This Report

Over the past year it has been nearly impossible to have a conversation about IT without discussing the economy and cost savings for business. But the economy hasn't been the only hot topic in these conversations; cloud computing has evolved from being just a buzz word to becoming one of the most exciting concepts in developing IT today. With many vendors announcing new cloud offerings daily, Forrester has seen a quickly expanding number of client inquiries around cloud computing. This acceleration shows no signs of slowing, as Forrester analysts fielded more than 264 client inquiries about cloud computing between January 2008 and April 1, 2009 from companies of all sizes and industries. Here we provide some insight into the most commonly asked questions on the topic of cloud computing.
