Organisations of all sizes are moving to Cloud solutions such as core financial applications and for transactional systems of record. According to the report, smaller and midsize organisations are adopting Cloud more rapidly than larger organisations, with 44.6 percent of smaller organisations, 37.7 percent of midsize enterprises and 40.4 percent of large organisations planning to move to the Cloud over the next three years.

"We have found that most clients asking about these financial business application markets are solely interested in the cloud option," said John Van Decker, Research Vice President at Gartner.

The report further revealed that 93 percent of enterprises see the Cloud being utilised for half of enterprise transactions in the future. According to the Gartner, Cloud solutions are still developing and do not have uniform capability to meet the needs of all verticals, company size and local markets.
