Re: In part, it's an intuitive measure
I think it's curious to see that geographic expansion was one of the side benefits of cloud adoption for this survey group.  I wonder if the correlation is due to the ability to support other locations through cloud services themselves, or if the cost savings/streamlining of services led to the decision to expand.

In part, it's an intuitive measure
It's hard to tie use of the cloud to bottom line improvement in an IT shop with lots to do besides implement fancy measurement systems for ops. Some of the bottom line improvement is intuitive -- we wouldn't have done this without access to cloud computing.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
