Cloud computing more used by German firms with 250+ staff

Friday 19 December 2014 | 13:20 CET | News
Some 12 percent of companies based in Germany have used cloud computing this year, according to the federal bureau of statistics (Destatis). Use of this service depends on the size of the firm. It said 27 percent of companies with 250 employees or more have used cloud services, but only 10 percent of companies with between 10 and 49 employees. Companies that refuse to use cloud computing justify this with security concerns (37%) and legal insecurities (32%).
