Cloud Blockers – survey results

(Stephen Parker – Head of Cloud Strategy)

To support a recent round Australia roadshow I was doing for Microsoft partners we carried out a survey to better understand what the blockers to cloud activation were.  We promised to provide a summary of the survey on this blog and here it is.

A few observations:

  1. The aggregated results stayed pretty consistent as more survey results came in (i.e. similar views across partners)
  2. The “very important” issues were technical – does this reflect customer concerns or partners comfort with the technical side of things?
  3. The “important” issues were business related.  In my experience these are the areas where partners are most in need of support (see Mass Adoption of Cloud is Stalling in Partner Land. Why?)

Cloud Blockers - Very Important
