CDW Government LLC (CDW-G) today announced the results of its first Cloud Computing Tracking Poll, an assessment of current and future cloud computing use in business, government, healthcare and education based on a survey of 1,200 IT professionals familiar with their organization’s use of, or plans for, cloud computing. Twenty-eight percent of U.S. organizations are using cloud computing today, CDW-G found, with most reporting (73 percent) that their first step into the cloud was implementation of a single cloud application.

While many organizations (84 percent) say they have already employed at least one cloud application, most do not yet identify themselves as cloud users who are implementing or maintaining cloud computing.

The poll includes findings specific to each of the eight industries surveyed during March 2011: small businesses, medium businesses, large businesses, the Federal government, state and local governments, healthcare, higher education and K-12 public schools.
