New research explores challenges and potential with cloud-based analytics

April 24, 2018 / James Bourne

What is the state of cloud analytics today? New research from Teradata argues that while most organisations want to run all of their analytics in the cloud by 2023, the journey is taking longer than anticipated. The findings, which appear in the company’s latest report, titled ‘The State of Analytics in the Cloud’ polling leaders at 700 global organisations, show an apparent disconnect. 83% of respondents said public cloud was the best place to run analytics, but an even higher number (91%) argued analytics should be moving to public cloud more quickly. Issues with getting analytics onto the public cloud include security – cited by 50% of those polled – poor performance of technology already available (49%) and regulatory compliance (35%). Other concerns cited include difficulties with connecting legacy systems and cloud applications and lack of in-house talent.
