- 7-reasons behind slow pace of cloud services adoption among Malaysian businesses
Cloud computing is today transforming the way businesses use technology. It’s become an essential solution for operational efficiency and positive bottom lines.
Without a doubt, cloud computing empowers businesses to run faster and more cost effectively than ever before by simply allowing businesses to pay for the resources they consume, when they consume them and bursting in scale when needed. It’s a technology adoption that businesses cannot ignore but many worry about the related transition issues.
Yes, operations still revolve around servers, storage and networking but the key thing is this - instead of debating on the migration related issues, software and ongoing maintenance, businesses can now spend more time innovating and creating new business opportunities and leave the cloud migration and management to an industry leader and specialist.
Thus, for a simple, secure and seamless experience in cloud adoption, it’s imperative to partner with a proven and reputable service provider that can confidently walk you through the adoption process.
JOS Malaysia, also formerly known as Jardine OneSolution (M) Sdn Bhd, is a trusted name to many in business and today, we are poised to help you make this technological leap.
THE MALAYSIAN SCENARIO
In Malaysia, the adoption rate is relatively slow but is expected to catch on. In 2018, International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasted that the Cloud-related services market in Malaysia will have a compounded annual growth rate of 23.8% over the next five years.
In assessing the Malaysian scenario, managing director of JOS Malaysia Sdn Bhd Steven Soo shared that companies in Malaysia are lagging behind the Cloud maturity curve. The pace of change is a tad slow because of a few factors like:
- Understanding of Cloud. No proper definition. What are the benefits?
- Understanding of Migration. Lack of knowledge, experience and planning to handle the migration.
- Low IT Skills. Lack of skills to handle both hardware and software.
- Security Concerns. Consumer concerns of data breaches if sensitive data is stored in the Cloud.
- Unexpected Outcome. The consumer has a big doubt on the outcome as Cloud adoption is based on trial and error. If any errors occur, does cloud really help?
- Existing Hardware Issue. To reuse the existing hardware or having it co-exist with Cloud might be very complex.
- The Billing. The variable cost from Cloud services might impact the monthly operational budget.
