Are you using industry cloud platforms? Tell us--why or why not.

Take this quick, multiple choice survey and tell us how your business leverages industry cloud platforms.

Industry cloud research: Preferred vendors, budget priorities, and first impressions Industry cloud companies were once considered too specialized to produce significant results, but that perspective is quickly changing. This March 2015 Tech Pro Research report outlines preferred vendors, industry cloud budgets, decision-making priorities and what people loved - or hated - about industry cloud services.

The industry cloud continues to grow, vertically that is, as more and more big businesses embrace the customization that industry cloud platforms offer. 

What are the advantages of using an industry cloud service? TechRepublic's sister site, TechRepublic Premium, is conducting a survey to find out.

You'll be asked questions about the types of industry cloud services your organization uses, the most important factors in choosing an industry cloud service, and about the positive—and negative—outcomes your company has experienced by using an industry cloud service provider.

All respondents will have a chance to enter their email at the end of the survey and receive a free copy of the resulting research report, which is normally only available to Tech Pro Research subscribers.
