Top services or applications moving to the cloud


Among public-sector organizations, the federal government is leading the charge to the cloud, as might be expected considering the Office of Management and Budget’s Cloud First  mandate. But state and local government and higher education organizations are moving to the cloud, too.

What are they using the cloud for most often? CDW recently surveyed 1,242 IT professionals across the public and private sectors for its 2013 State of the Cloud Report.  And although there is some overlap among the three sectors, there are also some differences in usage.

From the CDW report, here are the three most common services and applications each of the three sectors — federal, state and local and higher ed — are taking to the cloud. The percentages indicate the rate of adoption among agencies that have migrated or are migrating those services to the cloud.
