Cloud computing remains foreign concept for most

Posted on Thursday, August 30 2012 @ 22:38:40 CEST by

A recent survey commissioned by Citrix found that the majority of Americans have no clue about what cloud computing is. Of the 1,006 people polled by Wakefield Research, 29 percent thought it had to do with an actual cloud or something related to weather, and a whopping 51 percent believed bad weather affects cloud computing.

Only 16 percent of those interviewed correctly understood the phrase as the use of computing resources that are delivered as a service over a network.
A full 54 percent of Americans say they never use the cloud but after further probing, it turns out that 95 percent of respondents actually do. Almost one in three people say it’s a thing of the future and 15 percent believe that only those in the tech industry use it. Both assumptions, of course, are incorrect.

One in five Americas say they have pretended to know what the cloud is or how it works while 14 percent have lied about it during a job interview. More than half (56 percent) don’t think other people referring to the cloud in conversation really know what it is either.
