''Respondents across the South Asian region are no different from the Indian enterprises and have echoed similar sentiments about their move to the cloud. In 2012, more and more enterprises will see the growing relevance of cloud as it promises the benefits of speed, flexibility and cost efficiency,'' said Eric Hoh, vice president, South Asian Region, Symantec.

''To leverage these benefits effectively, IT organizations must ensure they have the same visibility and control of their information and applications whether they are in the cloud or residing on their own infrastructure,'' he added.

The Indian organizations are also concerned about security, rating it both as a top goal and as a top concern with moving to the cloud.
