Report: Where’s the value from cloud investments?

Stephanie Condon, ZDNet, June 15, 2021

“Across the board, business and technology leaders from a range of sectors agree that cloud computing tools are critical for a company’s growth, a new PwC survey shows. However, more than half said they’re not realizing substantial value from their cloud investments.

With the survey, PwC explores why a gap exists between the C-suite’s perceived value in the cloud and the realized value, as well as how to close that gap. It starts with aligning objectives — the survey shows that, based on their role, executives have different ideas about the goals they aim to achieve with cloud computing.”
