A pragmatic holistic approach to hybrid cloud can drive immense business value by accelerating innovation, improving cost efficiency and increasing productivity,” said Viswanath Ramaswamy, vice president, technology, IBM Technology Sales, IBM India/South Asia.When it comes to managing their cloud applications, 66% of respondents said their team lacks the skills needed to be proficient. This is a major roadblock to innovation, with more than a quarter of the respondents saying skills and talent shortages are impeding their business’ cloud objectives.While more than 90% of the responding financial services, telecommunications and government organisations globally have adopted security tools such as confidential computing capabilities, multifactor authentication and more, gaps remain that are preventing organizations from driving innovation. Further, security concerns can hold organisations back from unlocking the full potential of partnerships.With regulations on the rise, so are compliance challenges. 57% of the respondents believe ensuring compliance in the cloud is currently too difficult and 33% cite regulatory compliance issues as a key barrier for integrating workloads across private and public IT environments.
