Hello Friends,

IT managers appear to see no value in cloud technology. The cloud takes the opportunities presented by outsourcing to the next level.  Emerging technologies and cloud services provide all organisations with opportunities to change the way they operate and ultimately to improve performance whilst reducing cost.”
Currently just under one in ten (8%) IT managers surveyed said that their business is using the cloud for one or two services, while just 3% of firms have adopted it widely across the business.  The companies most likely to be using cloud related services are larger companies and those operating in the Services sector.  However, Protiviti noted that many organisations do not have a clear strategy for cloud computing.
According to the research, security is the biggest barrier to the widespread adoption of cloud services, followed by data privacy.  Other barriers to adoption identified include concerns over reliability and availability of services and concerns over business recovery, in the event of failure of a cloud provider.

Thanks and Regards,
