New Delhi, Oct 25 (IBNS): Technology decision makers in Indian companies have said that they are highest adopters of public cloud solutions in the world.

A survey by Microsoft and leading market research firm Wakefield Research shows that 57% respondents from India have adopted public cloud solutions. 33% respondents stated that their companies use hybrid cloud (a combination public and private cloud) solutions.

These are among the highest rate of adoptions and are better than markets such as US, UK and Japan.

The results of the Wakefield Azure survey highlight some key areas where cloud based technology solutions are making the difference for Indian companies. The survey was conducted among Information Technology Decision Makers (ITDMs) and IT Professionals across major markets like India, US, UK, Japan and Brazil.

Startups in India are driving innovation in these key areas by leveraging the power of Microsoft’s local cloud services
