This IDC Survey summarizes the technical benefits and characteristics of deploying content management in the cloud. The results and analysis provided in this document are derived from an IDC survey of 700 technology and line-of-business decision makers in North America and the United Kingdom across small to large organizations. The respondents represent organizations that have or will deploy content management technology in the cloud and directly influence the decision, budgeting, planning, and strategy associated with technology acquisition.
"Deploying a content management application in the cloud has gained favor with technology decision makers as requirements for data security, workload scalability, and regional governance improve," stated Marci Maddox, research director, Enterprise Content Strategies at IDC. "IT can reduce the time spent on managing the system to focus on unique projects that bring automation, knowledge sharing, and business efficiency to the organization."
