Firms 'confused' by cloud computing

A LACK of awareness and understanding about cloud computing is holding back development of the sector, with 54pc of companies confused by the term, according to a new survey by O2.

The O2 cloud computing survey finds that the main barriers to adoption are 'security of data', cited by more than two-thirds of respondents, followed by "integration with existing systems" mentioned by 39pc. "Lack of awareness appears to be holding back many Irish firms from generating the productivity benefits of the cloud," commented Alan Brown, business director at Telefonica Ireland, which operates the O2 brand.
