UK Outperforms EU in Cloud Adoption; Becoming Sixth Largest Cloud User

by December 20, 2018

Eurostat published research unveils that the UK is the sixth greatest cloud user among other countries in the EU. As per the reports, Cloud adoption in the UK is leading EU average.

Before diving into the depth, let’s just have a brief look at what does Cloud Adoption mean.

Cloud adoption is a blueprint used by business ventures to improve the extensibility of Internet-based database capabilities simultaneously reducing cost and risk. To enact this, businesses indulge in the process of cloud computing or using remote servers hosted on the Internet to store manage, and practice important data.

Interpreting the statistical data published by European Statistical Office, following abstracts can be derived.

•  It is claimed by British ventures that they have comparatively high rate of cloud adoption, summing up to 41.9 percent of corporations endorsing some form of cloud service.

•  Predominant Scandinavian countries like Finland, Sweden and Denmark having 65.3 percent, 57.2 percent, and 55.6 percent of cloud users, respectively are dictating over the UK by an inch.

•  With an increase of 17.9 percent over 2014 dominating over comparatively neutral EU-wide average increase of 7.2 percent, organisations in the UK are leading the rest of Europe in context to cloud adoption.

•  Observation of the data from France and Germany illustrates that the rate of cloud adoption was at lows of 19 percent and 22 percent respectively.

•  Moreover, the inputs depict that only 29 percent of organisations use cloud-based customer relationship management (CRM) tools and apps and just 23 percent of European firms use cloud computing strength for enterprise software.

Eurostat experts Magdalena Kaminska and Maria Smihily quoted – “Cloud computing is one of the strategic digital technologies considered important enablers for productivity and better services. Enterprises use cloud computing to optimise resource utilisation and build business models and market strategies that will enable them to grow, innovate and become more competitive…. Growth remains a condition for businesses’ survival and innovation remains necessary for competitiveness. In fact, the European Commission in the wider context of modernisation of the EU industry develops policies that help speed up the broad commercialisation of innovation.”
