4 Major Issues That Are Problematic In Cloud Technologies

4 Major Issues that are Problematic in Cloud Technologies

We’ve heard pretty much about cloud deployment that it is not the end at all and means a lot for many enterprises. But the cloud still causes quite enough difficulties. In last months Oracle research, 1355 pollees from different countries with the proceeds of $ 65 million have faced the problem of silos. Cloud apps adoption all over the world is quite way-up, but many companies have not imploded cloud apps and business peculiarities. It shows the problem of integration still remains global.

Without a shadow of doubt, all enterprises want to obtain software of high quality in order to do well in their business.

 The survey features that:

  • 71 % of organizations have already embraced cloud applications and executives use them in all departments;

  • 83% have prevented their enterprises from getting best business apps with poor cloud integration;

  • 54% confirm their project deadlines have been let go and have sustained outage time because of the cloud integration problem;

  • 50% of enterprises have decided to give up the idea to use one cloud app at least in 3 years;

Despite the high level of cloud adoption, the survey unveils 4 main problems that are important to overcome. As per the research, here are 4 sections that are still endemic:

  1. Stuff Downtime

The majority of companies expected to get an easy access to cloud-based apps, but 54 % of respondents have experienced stuff downtime for the last 6 months. Although the companies haven’t stop working they can’t get enough cloud data around the organization, as the cloud apps are not fairly integrated with other business apps. Due to the fact, many organizations have missed the project deadline. In average, there was 9 times for last 6 months per company.

  1. Lost Project Deadlines

54 % of pollees, who use cloud applications, report they haven’t met project deadlines, as they can’t share cloud data across the organization. As it was above-mentioned this case has happened 9 times per company. However, most of managing directors affirm they are informed about this point in comparison with a small part of MDs that report they are not aware of it. Mostly, the problem has touched India, Brazil and Singapore.

  1. Cloud Falling Short

One big problem for companies is they don’t get such an option to innovate quickly. 75 % of respondents say they utilize cloud applications and they have faced the cloud app integration when the question concerns a quick innovation. Most companies get an integration problem with other enterprise applications and other organizations have a problem to integrate with other apps. Integrally, 53 % of pollees have faced the integration problem.

In addition, 20% of respondents that use cloud apps can’t use them on their cell phone devices. They are even dissatisfied with the possibilities of their applications for mobile devices.

  1. Given up Cloud Applications

50% of companies have abandoned to utilize at least one cloud app for the last 3 years. They say they have given up using just one cloud app during this time. This behavior has been usual in India, Brazil and Singapore. In most cases, it was marked with managing directors and enterprise owners, who are quite familiar with the problem. It is fairly important for providers, as these categories of people are responsible to buy and invest in companies.

Cloud App Integration

81 % of enterprises still think that it is quite indispensable to completely integrate cloud apps with each other and with other enterprise apps, as it will give a priority to raise the number of cloud app users up to 88%.

Overall, most of respondents that use cloud apps have a strategy here and there. The vantage is that these cloud strategies are quite practical among enterprises with plenty of departments that use cloud apps than with just one department.

On the top of this, the cloud is still significant for many organizations who have figured out the impact on the existing infrastructure.
