Today, many organizations are using an average of four cloud services, such as email, file sharing, CRM, and backup in their environment. However, many are finding that what they really need is a single solution to simplify IT for their organization. Mixing legacy in-house solutions with cloud services from different providers can be more complex than what you had before. In fact, 56% of organizations prefer a single source for their hosted IT where they can get all of the applications and the services and support they need.
