Understanding trends and shifts in IT markets requires more than anecdotal evidence. Well-designed, focused and executed telephone surveys are a prime vehicle to get an idea about what’s going on in a specific market.

The underlying reason for these trends is buyers’ strong belief that using cloud computing will dramatically slash IT cost.
