Data Integration Remains a Major IT Headache
Study shows that data integration is still costly and requires a lot of manual coding.
You want to convince corporate America the cloud is a good idea? Address their anxieties about integration.
A recent IDC study found that executives are softening on their fears about the public cloud, but integration remains a major worry point for enterprise leaders:
The survey, which was sponsored by Infosys, queried 326 executives in the UK, U.S., France and Germany. It’s possible integration made the top of the list because of where this particular group stands with cloud adoption: 69 percent of them had already started in private cloud and 40 percent said they are now moving to public or hybrid clouds.
It makes sense that integration would be foremost on their minds as they look to expand their use of cloud resources.
In the past, there have been questions about how cloud would impact systems integrators.
The report provides further support that integration service providers may actually benefit, finding that 56 percent are engaging or considering engaging an external service provider to help them with cloud adoption.
