Citrix Cloud Survey

Most Americans only pretend to understand "the cloud," according to a nationally representative survey of people aged 18 or older sponsored by Citrix, a cloud-based business productivity company. In fact, 51 percent believe stormy weather will interfere with cloud computing! Only 16 percent rightly identify the cloud as a computer network that allows people to store, access, and share data from Internet-connected devices, says Citrix.

Twenty-two percent of survey respondents say they have pretended to understand the cloud in conversation or at the office, with millennials most likely to fake it (36 percent). Regardless of generation, the 56 percent majority thinks others are faking an understanding of the cloud.
