Around three-quarters of businesses do not currently use cloud computing models, according to a new survey which suggests that there is plenty of scope for the technology's introduction this year.
PeoplePerHour.com asked 1,300 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) about the technology and also found that 43 per cent are unsure of what cloud computing is.
However, Neil Cross, the managing director of Advanced 365, advises companies to implement cloud as it leads to "reduced costs and operational efficiency".
He added: "Cloud computing technologies are evolving rapidly and with an increasing number of options to choose from it’s hardly surprising that SMEs are struggling to understand the cloud and how it could work for them.
"It is essential that SMEs, with support from a partner who truly understands cloud computing, work with a reputable provider whose data centre operations contain a high-level of security with robust back-up processes and systems in place."
Earlier this week it was revealed that 300,000 jobs could be created by cloud computing by 2015.
