Moving to the cloud still a priority despite challenges

Although moving legacy IT to the cloud remains a top objective for businesses, there are many challenges to overcome first.

Indeed, many organisations face issues regarding data regulations, security, and cloud costs, according to a report by Archive360. This could explain why only 35% of enterprises stop more than 50% of their legacy app data on cloud services, while 80% report it as being their priority.

Data compliance is a rather important concern, especially with changing data regulations in California and in Europe, as well as security with the rise in ransomware and cyberattacks, and the uncertainty over budgets for cloud-based IT. All of this delay IT migration even though moving to the cloud will have long-term benefits.
