A Citrix cloud survey reveals that 51% of the people think weather affects cloud computing services. I guess they think it is like satellite TV!
"The majority of Americans (54%) claim to never use the cloud, however 95% of those who think they’re not using the cloud, actually are: 65% are banking online, 63% have shopped online, 58% report using social networking sites, 45% have played online games, 29% store photos online, 22% have stored music or videos online, and nearly 1 in 5 (19%) use online file-sharing services – all of these are cloud-based."
"3 in 5 (59%) believe the “workplace of the future” will exist entirely in the cloud."
They just need to be educated about what it means. That is your job now.
Gartner says that it takes 3 discussions with a prospect to get them to fully understand cloud.
