On average respondents were 70% satisfied that they were able to achieve all that they wanted to in moving to the cloud. The result of this question did however vary between sectors sampled in the survey. Respondents from the insurance sector were 79% satisfied whilst those from marketing and advertising companies were only 47% satisfied on average that they were able to achieve their objectives. These results therefore demonstrate the diversity of responses between the different industries included in the survey.
When interviewed, one interviewee commented that moving to the cloud:
“solved the immediate issues” and yet brought with it “a steep learning curve and a financial burden”.
This therefore demonstrates that migration to the cloud can bring many advantages for companies but can also create a number of problems. It is for this reason that not all companies are 100% satisfied that they were able to achieve everything they wanted to by moving to the cloud.
