Key perceived barriers to cloud adoption

Despite the general positivity towards cloud, there are those who still have lingering doubts.

Future Decoded is the annual Microsoft event where business leaders gather to learn about the technologies shaping our future. At the centre of it is the cloud. During Future Decoded 2017, we carried out a survey to identify attitudes towards the cloud, key perceived barriers to adoption and priorities for the coming year.

Our findings showed that there were 3 key barriers to cloud adoption perceived by the participants:

  1. Security and compliance
  2. Budget
  3. Lack of technical knowledge
