Cloud decisions are no longer in the IT department's hands - the suits have taken over

ZDNet - A new report has revealed that decisions around cloud are increasingly being made by people outside IT departments.

The cloud has well and truly slipped the bonds of the IT department, a new report has found.

The report, commissioned by IT consultants Capgemini and released on Thursday, surveyed 460 organisations globally and 50 in the UK, and shows that the responsibility for cloud adoption lies primarily with employees without an IT background.

"The real cloud evangelists these days seem to be on the business side and not the IT side," Ron Tolido, senior vice president for Continental Europe at Capgemini, told ZDNet. "Until now cloud was often considered a more technology-driven topic."
