Cloud computing is unavoidable for companies and they expect benefits in terms of efficiency and savings.

With cloud computing, companies remain focused on their business and benefit from IT resources without bearing the costs associated with infrastructure and licence investments. The flexibility of cloud computing enables companies to quickly adapt their IT system to the activity while enjoying pay-per-use billing at the right price.

According to the “PAC CloudIndex” study published by Pierre Audoin Consultants (PAC) measuring the maturity of French organisations:

In most cases, the IT Department advocates this strategy (68%) and implements it (84%). However, it is starting to persuade the executive committee, which advocates the cloud strategy in 17% of cases, and the CEO directly in almost 10% of cases.

Of the organisations that have adopted the cloud, 62% say that they use SaaS, 34% IaaS and 22% PaaS.

The increased flexibility is now the number-one reason for using the cloud (71%), just ahead of a desire to reduce costs (56%). This constitutes a major change in perspective.

The main obstacle to cloud computing is still the security fears (44%), an essential condition when choosing a service provider, especially when 59% of the respondents who use the cloud consider that at least one of their SaaS applications is strategic for their business.

Over the last 25 years, Prosodie-Capgemini has built up vast experience in the “pay-per-use” model associated with cloud mode. Its proprietary solutions and its state-of-the-art technical infrastructure mean that it can design innovative models that are capable of responding to a wide variety of needs expressed by customers.
