Two-thirds of respondents to a survey on cloud computing requirements conducted on behalf of connectivity provider Colt Technology Services indicated that their cloud migration projects have been effected by the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. However, the same survey also showed that 96% of the senior IT decision-makers polled are comfortable with the idea of moving critical business applications or services to the cloud and that 44% have already moved 50% to 75% of such functions to the cloud and 8% had extended that figure between 75% and 100%.
The Insights for Professionals Network conducted the survey for Colt in February 2020, then repolled the respondents for their views on the impact of COVID-19. The survey reflects responses from 255 European participants who work for enterprises with 500 or more employees. The respondents hold senior roles and responsibility for making high-level IT or networking decisions, according to Colt.
