Countries have been reviewed worldwide to analyse their cloud computing compatibility and dedication to the cause, and it appears that some countries are falling far behind the expected standards. Developed countries such as Germany, United Kingdom and Australia are said to be embracing the cloud computing era and taking as many steps towards renovating the IT sector as we know it, however some countries such as South Africa, Brazil and even China are said to be inhibiting the growth of cloud computing in their countries. In some cases this is due to the fact that the country is still developing and therefore cloud computing is not high up the priorities list, which is likely to be the case in Brazil and South Africa, however this is not the case in China – it appears to be their high security concerns which is inhibiting the growth of cloud computing. The highest scoring country in the survey was Japan, scoring 83.3 out of 100 possible points, showing their great advances in the cloud computing market. The countries were not just graded on how much they liked cloud computing, they scored points in areas such as infrastructure, intellectual property protection and other areas to give a well rounded view of the country’s cloud computing advances.
