Most organizations are using the cloud for some of their business processes and services. But piecemeal adoption of applications has led to inefficiencies, management problems, and an overall lack of visibility across the IT infrastructure.
The result is stunted cloud growth. Though 90% of organizations say they feel more confident in using cloud technologies than at any point in the past three years, only 44% have achieved large-scale cloud adoption, according to a 2019 Harvey Nash / KPMG CIO survey.
“For many organizations, living on the cloud just happens. But if they make it an integral part of operations and business goals, it will streamline efficiency, improve services, and transform the business,” said Priya Emmanuel, Managing Director of Cloud Strategy and Transformation for KPMG.
