Examining how cloud trust relates to business performance
- Key finding from a report published by The Economist and sponsored by Google on how trust in cloud computing correlates with business performance.
Three primary elements that will help businesses engage further:
1) C-suite support for cloud initiatives. The survey argues that at organisations with low levels of cloud trust, management is the most common barrier to the adoption of cloud technologies. “The C-suite alone cannot instill trust in cloud technology, but without its help such confidence may not develop,” the report notes.
2) Introducing cloud services with an eye to building trust. High profile improvements can help build trust across an organisation, the report notes, as well as simpler, quick win solutions. This was one of the keys to Siemens building their trust in cloud.
