According to CompTIA's "Fifth Annual Trends in Cloud Computing" report, which is based on survey responses from executives within IT companies and IT business professionals who are involved in IT decision-making for their organizations, more than 90 percent of channel firms believe their cloud solutions are "mature or somewhat mature."
