The survey delved into the adoption of cloud tech, ease of hybrid cloud adoption, and the challenges that the industry faces in this adoption.
Let’s take a look at the key takeaways from the survey:
- Sixty-seven percent of the respondents stated that they believe the hybrid cloud tech model is not just a step towards cloud infrastructure but a permanent solution.
- 28.6 percent of the respondents said they’re ready to adopt and remain with the hybrid cloud tech model until the full cloud adoption can meet their workloads.
- Only a small 4.3 percent of the respondents said they would not switch to the cloud model and stick to the hundred percent on-premise model.
- Thirty-four percent of the respondents said that privacy and trust issues with the public cloud are keeping them at bay from using the technology.

What are the challenges that cloud tech adoption has to face?
Below are the major concerns when it comes to the adoption of cloud tech:
- Forty-eight percent of the respondents believe that a lack of technical expertise or certified staff is holding them back from full cloud migration.
- Thirty-three percent believe that connectivity issues are a concern that needs to be addressed.
- Twenty-nine percent of respondents believe that secured access might be able to help them decide in favor of going cloud.

And with the right set of engineers and developers, companies can ensure a smooth migration to a cloud-based technology from an on-premise setup.
