Funded by CSC and carried out by TNS, a survey of more than 3,500 cloud computing users in eight countries around the world found that although requirements for business agility and cost savings factor in, they alone are not the most important drivers for cloud adoption. 

A third of respondents cited their need to better connect employees through  a multitude of computing devices as the number one reason they adopt cloud. 17% cited accelerating the speed of business, while 10% mentioned cost savings as the driver.

82% of respondents said they saved money on their most recent cloud project, but these savings have not always been significant. 93% say the cloud improved data centre efficiency / utilization or another measure and 80% saw improvements within 6 months.
