According to a new study three quarters of UK businesses are experiencing frustration with adoption, as finding the right cloud provider has never been more important.
The survey conducted by Arlington Research and StratoGen polled over 1,000 UK senior business executives. The results showed that more than a third of respondents admit that they host fewer than 10% of their IT applications in the Cloud.
17% also stated that insufficient availability of applications was problematic and 16% argued that a lack of IT support was the issue.
The report argues that a lack of business growth with cloud technologies is hampering UK executives – with 17% stating that their current cloud solutions prevent their company from growing and 14% are worried downtime issues impact on employee productivity and earnings.
Chief commercial officer Karl Robinson from StratoGen states:
“A cloud platform should always be fit for a business’s individual needs, with in-built scalability to allow for growth without surprising cost hikes,” adding that “It is clear UK businesses today have a distinct lack of confidence in the cloud’s ability to deliver the benefits it is capable of. To truly instil trust, cloud solutions must prove the business value being provided.
This latest report clearly shows that finding the right cloud provider is essential to maintaining strong business growth after migrating to the cloud.
