Gartner Insights on How and Why Leaders Must Implement Cloud Computing

SUMMARY

Companies that lack a top-level cloud strategy driven by their own company strategy are very likely to increase their risk of failure and wasted investment, this report notes.

After over ten years, many aspects and areas of cloud computing remain as an unexplored territory for many CIOs. The reason for this it's because there are still some myths around this topic that this report identifies.

This Gartner study aims at helping CIOs to familiarize themselves with the different sorts of cloud options and start to create a framework to shift toward leveraging cloud computing. This report also takes a look at security in the cloud and the necessary talent for a successful move.

Regarding the security concerns, this study shows that public cloud infrastructure as a service workloads in 2020 will go through 60% fewer security issues than those in traditional data centers. Also, more than half of companies that put in place the correct cloud visibility and control tools will suffer one-third fewer security incidents, the report says. Along the same line, Gartner experts believe that through 2020, a great majority of the cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.

The report points out as well that companies that do not address soon the recruitment of a cloud architect will end up having to adopt cloud services through ad hoc processes that unfortunately will lead to duplicate work cycles and general issues and frustrations.
