A new benchmark survey indicates companies aren’t just dabbling in cloud computing anymore. They’re using it as a mainstream tool for running their businesses.

Consider some numbers from the 4th annual “The Future of Cloud Computing” report: Respondents reported a 72% adoption rate of software-as-a-service offerings – a five-fold increase in four years. About 7 in 10 respondents claimed they’ll invest in moving more business applications to the cloud in the next year or two. And 49 percent of respondents reported they either want to or already run their company in the cloud.

“What comes across to me loud and clear from this survey is that even more businesses are no longer thinking, ‘Why Cloud?’, but will focus the next 12-24 months figuring out, ‘How do I execute a long-term cloud strategy?’” said Mike Schutz, general manager of cloud platform marketing at Microsoft.
