The usage of cloud computing has increased, with a third (31 per cent) of businesses now perceiving the technology as "critical", research shows.
Cisco's Cloudwatch 2012 report found that 90 per cent of IT decision makers now claim that the cloud is "on their agenda", marking a significant rise from 2001's 52 per cent figure.
Of these businesses, 85 per cent are hoping to complete extra investment in the next year alongside their data management measures.
It was also found that 54 per cent of respondents currently use the private cloud in comparison to 34 per cent last year.
The study follows comments from Royce Murphy, Chief Executive Officer of Real Status, who believes that hybrid cloud environments will become more common among companies.
Ian Foddering, Chief Technology Officer and Technical Director, Cisco UK and Ireland, said: "Cloud usage has now gone mainstream. After several years of ‘hype' across the IT industry, it now seems that cloud is maturing and organisations across a broad range of sectors are realising the benefits of moving to a cloud model."
