The clouds are rising. More and more businesses are adopting cloud solutions, and the trend is only going up. In fact, some argue that the hybrid cloud technology has introduced the fourth industrial revolution. And looking at the way businesses are using cloud computing, a cloud-first approach for enterprises seems to be essential to be competitive in the market.

Most businesses are also starting to realise the advantages of cloud computing.

Businesses come to the cloud for cost savings, the typical capex versus opex calculation. – next to operational cost savings, agility, scalability and flexibility are the most impactful benefits of cloud computing.

But why do some businesses still look at cloud computing with suspicion? There are two major reasons not every CIO is jumping on the cloud computing bandwagon.

Two Things That Stand In The Way Of Cloud Migration

Two Things That Stand In The Way Of Cloud Migration

Reason #1: Lack of visibility

Migrating to the cloud can be a messy task. Especially if you don’t spring clean your data in the process. With some workloads being managed on the cloud, and some being run in-house on a traditional datacenter, it is easy to lose oversight. Furthermore, handing over some of your data to a third party provider further ‘clouds’ visibility.

Reason #2: Managing Security on the cloud

Security is still of paramount concern to businesses considering moving to the cloud. According to some studies, 59% of businesses quote cyberattacks as their primary concern when running workloads online. This is followed by unauthorised access, downtime or outages, and misconfiguration of security controls.

Do you want to move to the cloud but aren’t sure about visibility and security?
