While the cloud can be a disruptive force, this global survey, conducted by Harvard Business Review and sponsored by Oracle, shows it is no longer a divisive one. The cloud is emerging as a unifying force that’s forging tighter collaboration between business and IT managers to drive innovation. The survey debunks three myths around implementing a public and/or private cloud strategy, including whether corporate systems need public cloud app data and how aligned IT and business are when it comes to the cloud.
Use of cloud computing services continues to grow rapidly as organizations migrate business applications and data to cloud-based software, platform and infrastructure services. Gartner estimates 2017 will see growth of 18% in spending on public cloud services and that cloud adoption will infuence more than 50% of IT spending through 2020.
Deloitte Global predicts that by the end of 2022 more than half of all IT spending will go to IT-as-a-service providers. In the 2016 edition of this survey, 56% of the security professionals responding said limitations on access to collect incident response data and evidence for forensic analysis was a key challenge to securing the cloud. Sixty-two percent said they were concerned about unauthorized access by outsiders, and 59% said they worried about access by other cloud tenants. Of the 10% who reported being breached, half blamed stolen credentials or compromised accounts.
