Solution Providers Opportunities
The majority of organizations (59%) are still evaluating additional IT operations that can potentially migrate to the cloud, opening the door for new partnerships with solution providers. Two areas that solution providers need to address are security and organizational savings. Half of organizations believe that it is a shared responsibility, between themselves and their cloud provider, to secure the information assets stored in the cloud. Additionally, enterprises are looking for solution providers to put stronger controls in place to enforce their compliance policies. Solution providers that are able to help make the business case for reducing TCO have a step up on their competitors who do not.
"Cloud investment discussions need to go deeper than speed, agility and flexibility. Solution providers need to address business goals," continued Melk. "The conversations should begin by highlighting how they can secure assets and reduce overall organizational costs to make a lasting impression."
