This IDC Energy Insights report analyzes the current and future application of cloud computing in utilities. The study — based on the IDC's 2014 CloudView Survey which interviewed 38 international senior utility executives — provides context for understanding why cloud remains an area of heightened attention at the highest levels of utility organizations. The information provided in this report will help utilities update their cloud road maps and ensure investments benefit the business.
"The utilities industry can no longer afford to deny the advantages of 'going into the cloud.' As security concerns are further debunked, utilities expect to see a significant push in their cloud strategy maturity in the next 24 months, so much so that they expect to make up lost ground and even supersede other industries," said Gaia Gallotti, research manager, IDC Energy Insights.
