50% of respondents to the survey felt that there were not any barriers preventing them from moving additional applications to the cloud, whilst the other 50% thought that there were. A third of those respondents highlighted uncontrolled variable cost as a further barrier to cloud adoption and 24% and 25% of those respondents listed reliability of data and latency respectively as potential barriers.
The format of this question allowed respondents to be able to input their own response in addition to the multiple-choice options given. Looking at these individual responses produced some interesting information. One of the answers given was customer acceptance. This therefore suggests that some companies are reluctant to make greater use of the cloud due to a lack of trust from customers.
