Some 94% of Colombia's largest companies are using cloud-based solutions, according to a study by regional cloud computing provider Avanxo and local PR firm Position Comunicaciones.
The release on the study did not provide further details on what the category "largest companies" entailed.
The most important issue for companies is having local support to implement a cloud solution and being able to analyze case studies and local references, the study found.
Most companies that have adopted cloud solutions did so to address collaboration, CRM and human resources management needs.
Some 44% of these companies are planning to invest more than 5% of their IT budget in cloud technologies.
Some 6% of the companies surveyed in Colombia are not looking into using cloud computing for their organizations, and 32% are starting to evaluate the use of these solutions.
