Presidio’s 2022 Cloud Transformation Benchmark Report uncovers the biggest opportunities and challenges IT leaders face on their digital journey.
“There’s often a significant disconnect between how easy it is to ‘go to the cloud’ and achieving the desired results,” the report’s executive summary says.
The study showed that IT’s relationship with their business plays major role in advancing a company’s cloud journey. As part of the study’s methodology, it asked respondents to rank themselves as one of six relationship personas, ranking from “IT firefighters,” where the business considers IT a “reactive cost center” (23% chose this ranking) to “business equals,” where IT and the business are considered equal partners (12% chose this).
Of those who ranked themselves as equal partners to the business, a majority (68%) said they experienced the most increased speed-to-market from cloud adoption. On the other side of the spectrum, IT firefighters were most likely to cite budgets and funding (41%) and executive buy-in (31%) as challenges in their cloud adoption journey.
