Government/education companies are significantly more likely to have disaster recovery in the cloud, both today and in two years.

Cloud-based supply chain systems are set to experience 41% growth. Smaller companies with revenues less than $500 million will lag in that area, with little more than 40% of companies expecting to have cloud-based supply chains by 2016.

As our survey results have shown, larger and more profitable companies are significantly more likely to have cloud-based assets today and expect to retain a comfortable lead.
