Notwithstanding well-documented concerns such as data security and
increased dependence on the service provider recent studies indicate that most large organizations in the USA are already using cloud computing services. There is also substantial evidence that the penetration of cloud computing varies depending on type of application, industry domain, type of organization, and geographic region. In this paper
we report the results of a recent pilot study on cloud computing adoption in the Czech Republic. While not statistically significant, the study appears to confirm outcomes of international studies, but also highlights specific issues such as lack of availability of localized services and increased price sensitivity. Most surveyed organizations use SaaS applications to support sales and marketing activities with little interest in other types of cloud services such as IaaS and PaaS
