Cloud computing solutions are gaining some real traction in the marketplace after it emerged that the amount of budgets allocated to the cloud is growing.

The IDG Enterprise Cloud Computing Study has found that a third (34 per cent) of IT spends are now going towards the technology and investment isn't expected to stop there – the survey also shows that organisations plan to increase cloud spending by 16 per cent over the next year.

A quarter of respondents think that the technology will play a critical role in shaping business strategy, with two-thirds (63 per cent) agreeing that it provides long-term cost savings.

However, seven-in-ten firms indicate that their IT departments need to expand their skills base to keep up with cloud trends, which is something that TalkTalk Business can help with, as we offer a specialist help desk, as well as a dedicated account manager and service delivery team.
