UK retail publication Retail Technology Review conducted a small survey of IT pros on their understanding of cloud computing, and a fair share, 41% to be exact, have no idea what it is. Even of the 59% who claim to know what it is, 29% don’t even know if their organization uses it.

As I mentioned, the survey sample size was small, but it points to the lack of understanding and the need for education that remains. If IT people are still struggling with the concept, I can only imagine this being a bigger issue for everyone else.

In the article, a good concise Youtube video is included that provides a good primer on cloud computing, SaaS and hardware as a service.
