Aptum Releases Part One of Quarterly Cloud Impact Study

Global banking and finance news 28

Despite 99% of IT professionals believing that cloud services are essential to the success of their business, performance concerns remain evident. To identify common drivers and obstacles impacting organizations undergoing cloud transformation, Aptum, the global hybrid multi-cloud and managed service provider, released part one of its four-part Cloud Impact Study, titled Bridging the Cloud Transformation Gap.

The initial findings, focusing on overall planning and migration efforts, reveal the main business drivers behind cloud adoption. Survey respondents cited the following reasons:

  • Increase efficiency (72%)
  • Increase business agility (56%)
  • Increase security (51%)
  • Business continuity (48%)
  • Increased profitability (39%)

As the cloud remains a top priority for businesses, its evident most organizations are still early in their journey. Key data points to support this include:

  • 71% have experienced negative effects due to the rate of cloud transformation; 33% cite IT expenditures as the leading cause
  • 69% of organizations want to accelerate their cloud deployments but admit they need expertise and help
  • 62% cite complexity and abundance of choice as a hindrance when choosing their cloud strategy
  • 41% consider themselves on par or lagging competitors in terms of cloud services

Cloud is critical to long-term sustainability, with the rewards and business drivers becoming increasingly apparent, states Craig Tavares, Global Head of Cloud at Aptum. The results demonstrate businesses understand this, yet the barriers are impeding businesses from reaching their goals. Enterprises can reap the full benefits of cloud technologies by partnering with cloud service providers who can remove the additional hassle while also allowing business leaders to focus on what they do best.”

The results call for business leaders to evaluate whether their current cloud deployments are fully utilized. If they are not, they should consider appropriate cloud service providers to support business growth and resilience. To see the full findings, please download the report here.

Aptums Cloud Impact Study was created from the opinions of 400 senior IT professionals in the US, Canada and UK across industries in financial services, IT, technology, telecommunications, manufacturing, retail, public and commercial sectors. Future reports will focus on Security and Compliance, Costs and Budgets, and Modernization Opportunities.
