Top Industries To Benefit From Cloud Applications’ Adoption

Top Industries To Benefit From Cloud Applications’ Adoption

According to the (USA Cloud Adoption & Trend 2012), cloud services are now a reality to be taken into account by any organization, and the trend is upwards in both capability and coverage. The top five industries to widely adopt cloud services are, according to the cited study, IT and technology, Education, Manufacturing, Business and professional services, and government.

These are the advantages that cloud services bring to the industries that I consider will benefit the most from implementing cloud applications and services…


Cloud-based tools will allow the educational system to leverage efficiency across nationwide or statewide networks. Students will be able to attend classes regardless of geographical location. Cloud applications will facilitate improved collaboration between team members and knowledge sharing. Access to latest technologies will be affordable for most educational institutions, not only top universities.


It looks like cloud computing is seen by manufacturers as a key driver for IT productivity in the years ahead. Cloud computing will enable the manufacturing industry to avoid the numerous technical and business issues that can occur while running their own data centers and save money by only paying for what they use and when they use it. They will no longer have to pay additional costs for managing their own data centers. Cloud computing permits manufacturing companies to use remote, large Internet server farms in the same manner as if they belonged to their own company.

Using the combination of the three core components of cloud environments, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and finally Software as a Service (SaaS), manufacturers are now able to establish a presence in virtually any location around the world, to connect plants to an IT infrastructure, and to look for new business opportunities everywhere in the world.

Travel and Hospitality:

Cloud computing has the potential to help companies in the travel and hospitality industries overcome their many challenges in a rapidly changing world. Cloud computing will allow people to manage booking a flight, renting a car and staying in a hotel room and also to register these transactions directly to their company’s accounting systems for payment. And all these without using paper.

Consumers will no longer need to engage with airlines and travel services companies separately, as they will have the possibility to engage all these as part of the same transaction.

Health Industry:

Cloud services could substantially improve the vast and fragmented environment the health industry is, which includes patients, insurance companies, hospitals, laboratories, physicians and so on.

The benefits of the cloud in the health industry are endless. Cloud computing solutions facilitate easier update and higher quality patient data, and enable better consumer lifestyle choices, allowing patients to be better informed and more involved in choosing a particular course of treatment.

Without a doubt, the benefits of cloud computing and cloud applications are endless, regardless of the industry we are talking about. The only problem that remains is for the organizations/ institutions to choose the solutions that best fit the business and the patients.
