While cloud adoption frameworks were developed early on to predict what customers might do with cloud, we believe enough implementations exist to validate those predictions and to recalibrate where necessary.

This white paper from the leadership of the IBM Academy of Technology represents the findings from 110case studies of cloud computing implementations in a survey conducted in August2010.

The case studies are mainly from mature markets and mainly from companies with more than 5,000 employees. With the exception of the chemical and petroleum industry and Indus trial products, virtually every industry is represented. The banking, government, telecom, insurance and financial markets industries represent over half of the case studies.
