Microsoft and Apple Highlight Cloud’s Flexibility

NEW YORK, NY–(Sep 5, 2011) – Companies are increasingly looking to cloud computing environments in order to accelerate value in business financials and reduce costs. Cloud computing is highly appealing to today’s organizations, not only because of its projected cost savings but also because of the cloud’s flexibility. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Technology Sector and provides stock research on Apple, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT). Access to the full company reports can be found at:

Management Today reports that 37 percent of firms surveyed say they will transfer in excess of 60 percent of their applications to a private cloud environment in the future. While large corporations and businesses are rapidly bringing their applications to the private cloud, co-existing with a public cloud has not been appealing to these organizations. The report finds that a mere 6 percent of those surveyed intend on moving to the full public cloud, based on security concerns.
