To better understand this balancing act, IBM® Services™ commissioned a survey conducted by IBM Market Development & Insights (MD&I).
The team surveyed 201 business and technology leaders, 34 percent of which were chief experience officers (CXOs) and 66 percent were IT directors. The goal was to better understand the degree of confidence that organizations have in their move to the cloud and what, if anything, would help reassure them that they can continue to accelerate cloud adoption.
Overall, the survey data revealed that most organizations are advancing their cloud agendas. But there are still challenges to be managed and having specific focus areas is key to a successful and confident move to the cloud.
