Cloud Business Survey

cloud business survey

Cloud transformation goes beyond just moving operations to the cloud. It is a process of reinventing business by unlocking new value, enabling smarter ways of working and rethinking technology. 

 

Through this survey we aim to provide a deeper understanding of how cloud adoption is happening in Romania and Central and Eastern Europe, as well as where we can find areas to leverage benefits and identify risks to prepare for challenges. 

 

The survey sample for Romania suggests cloud maturity in Romania is higher than in CEE, but there is an opportunity to implement more advanced cloud technologies from the beginning.

"The cloud has become an essential component in a digital operating environment, and its adoption is part of the business transformation process. The main gain from cloud implementation is the generation of new business models and therefore revenue. As our survey shows, both Romanian and Central and Eastern European companies are at the beginning of their cloud journey and should focus more on innovation and creating new revenue streams and not only on pursuing cost reduction goals," said Gabriel Voicilă, Technology Partner, PwC Romania."
