IDC’s Top 5 Cloud Applications for 2010


While the “cloud” term has been used and abused by everyone under the sun, there are in fact true cloud applications that deliver value to customers looking for data mobility and shared hardware/software costs, particular for data or content-heavy applications.

IDC recently released a report* outlining the top 5 cloud applications organizations are looking to pursue in 2010.  They are as follows:

1. Collaboration applications
2. Web applications/web serving
3. Cloud backup
4. Business applications
5. Personal productivity applications

How many of the five are you (or your customers) using?  Do you agree or disagree with this forecast?
