Trouble in paradise: IT professionals unhappy with cloud services

Only a fraction of cloud adopters think they're getting the value for money from the cloud.

The pandemic and remote working have undoubtedly pushed many businesses to accelerate their cloud transition.

Few, however, think they're reaping all the benefits. According to the latest report from CloudBolt, only 8% of IT professionals surveyed around the globe believe they are getting the most from the cloud.

A staggering 76% said they think their company is hitting a 'wall' as many of the daily tools were not designed to unify a multi-cloud, multi-tool world.

73% of the respondents agreed that they'd reached a point where they are struggling with efficiency scaling cloud efforts.

Complexities with cloud adoption have increased, meaning that many business units and engineers within an organization decide to find isolated local solutions.

That translates to companies having thousands of 'islands of automation' across teams, business units, subsidiaries, and locations.

Reports' authors think that this attitude leaves a mess for IT teams. Local tools have to accommodate different systems, optimize performance, and manage daily activities with tools that were never designed to handle the chaos on this scale.

"Enterprises are slowly but surely coming to the stark realization that what got them into this multi-cloud, multi-tool morass will not be what gets them out of it," CloudBolt's Jake O'Donnell wrote in a blog post.

Earlier this week, a different report showed that many IT professionals fear that threats designed for cloud challenge general and multi-cloud adoption the most.

Close to 63% of respondents said cyber threats specifically targeting cloud services were the main obstacle to cloud adoption.

Unsurprisingly, 60% said that the lack of security solutions protecting cross-platform environments was the critical hindrance for smoother general cloud adoption.

When you don't know how to cloud, you complain... :)

Things are simple in THE cloud, which is AWS, much simpler and easier than in traditional on-premises environments, but you need to know what you are doing, just like you need to know what you are doing in your traditional environment.
