Cloud computing is getting a chilly reception among CIOs and CFOs in the U.K. according to a study conducted by Vanson Bourne for managed services provider NTT Europe.
Of the 200 CIOs and CFOs at large businesses polled for the “Cloud or Fog” report (reg required), 35 percent admitted to having to plans to adopt cloud computing while 32 percent were classified as unsure. Part of the unease may be due to this:
“46 per cent of respondents felt definitions of cloud computing remained unclear.”
The study also reveals that cloud security, reliability and relative newness are big concerns, with 70 percent citing them as primary reasons for not adopting cloud-based services.
