Difficulties in using data stored in different corporate cloud environments
The study reveals that nearly three in five French decision makers say they use a hybrid environment, combining private cloud and public cloud solutions. However, more than three-quarters of them realize that it is difficult to fully exploit the value of data stored in different cloud and on-premise environments for their business.
Nine in ten IT decision makers plan to move more data to the cloud in the next three years, citing cost reduction, storage optimization and improved data accessibility as the top three drivers of this shift. Only 6% have returned on-premises data in the past 12 months, but 71% plan to do so within the next three years due to growing concerns over vendor lock-in, security and privacy. Performance issues when processing large datasets in real time.
Concerns over the proliferation of analytics tools and data silos
In an effort to get more out of their data, companies are increasingly using analytics solutions, primarily used by IT departments, followed by marketing, sales, finance, operations and resources. However, 63% of IT decision makers are concerned about the proliferation of analytics tools within their organization; 5 in average number.
In addition, two-thirds of IT decision makers see data silos as a major obstacle preventing their organization from making real-time decisions. A similar proportion of respondents report that this situation leads to financial loss.
There are growing concerns about vendor log-in, security and cyber security
The study also sheds light on growing enterprise concerns related to vendor log-in, security and cybersecurity. The results indicate that some companies are reluctant to move their data to the cloud.
These concerns are often vendor lock-in fears, data governance and privacy concerns, performance issues when processing large real-time datasets, and cybersecurity concerns. Related to non-conformities.
