Survey: Hybrid Clouds Set to be the Dominant Model

Check out this article in BusinessCloud9 entitled, “Public Sector Cloud – Glass Half Empty?” It’s a summary of this UNIT4 survey (the European company behind CODA and FinancialForce), which suggests that:

“‘Hybrid’ (mixing public and private) Clouds looks set to be the dominant model and that Cloud will continue to be a factor over the next ten years at least of ICT plans in the community.”

I agree with this statement, but unfortunately 501 of 607 respondents skipped the question about which industry they’re from and the survey’s geographic mix is quite random. I also found it surprising that in the question about cloud benefits, security was listed as an option – first time I’ve seen that. “Reliance on the internet” was the primary disadvantage of cloud applications and cloud control was number two. “Lack of integration and standards” was number three.

cloud disadvantagesIt’s interesting to note what the “Other” responses were….any guesses?
