System integration promotes solution effectiveness and efficiency. Implementing cloud without fully integrating it not only into systems so data can be shared, but into IT operations and oversight may leave enterprises at risk. Stand-alone solutions often do not provide the accumulative benefit that comes when individual parts come together in a collaborative solution. This increases the risk that the full value of the solution may not be obtained.

Solutions that are not integrated into IT operations, business unit processes, or the overall governance structure for IT may provide multiple opportunities of lost benefits and increased opportunities for greater cost and potential exposure to security and resilience failures. There appears to be little confidence among those participating in this study that cloud is effectively integrated into the established procurement process or that systems and cloud solutions are being effectively integrated (2.23).

Findings from a joint Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and ISACA survey show that government regulations, exit strategies and international data privacy dominate the top 10 areas where confidence in the cloud is lowest.

A collaborative project by ISACA and CSA, the “Cloud Market Maturity” study provides business and IT leaders with insight into the maturity of cloud computing and will help identify any changes in the market.  The report provides detailed insight on the adoption of cloud services among all levels within today’s global enterprises and businesses, including the C-suite.

The study reveals that cloud users in 50 countries were least confident about the following issues (ranked from least confident to most confident).
