Major Cloud Challenges for Enterprises 2022
« on: May 27, 2022, 09:18:37 AM »
According to recent studies, the main cloud challenges enterprises will face during 2022 include security, governance, compliance, finance and talent. Here, we take a closer look at the state of today’s enterprise cloud environment and give insights into these and other challenges.

Top challenges

Research shows that enterprises face eight major cloud challenges overall. In order of the number of respondents citing them, these were security (81%), managing finance (79%), governance (75%), lack of expertise (75%), compliance (75%), managing BYOL (73%), managing multi-cloud (72%) and cloud migration (71%). Noticeably, the figures for enterprises were higher in all areas than for SMBs.

The studies indicate that while companies have growing cloud experience, the adoption of multi-cloud and hybrid cloud strategies, together with an increase in cloud-based workloads still presents significant security, finance and governance challenges. And while managing multi-cloud/hybrid environments becomes easier as companies gain experience, ongoing changes (e.g., new regulations and emerging security threats) mean challenges with security, finance, governance and compliance remain constant.

How cloud maturity affects challenge

There are interesting differences in the challenges faced by enterprises that have recently become cloud users and those that can be considered as cloud-mature. For newcomers, the four biggest challenges cited by respondents were, in order, governance (79%), lack of expertise (78%), migration (77%) and security (76%). For cloud-mature enterprises, they were managing finance (81%), security (81%), governance (75%) and compliance (75%). For intermediate companies (those neither a newcomer nor mature) lack of expertise (87%) and security (86%) were, by some margin, cited as the major challenges.
