Multi-cloud environments are now predominantly exploited and the cloud is seen as the strategic trend for the next two to five years. So, beyond the heterogeneous mix of application architectures, what are the challenges and the latest figures to remember?

88% of EMEA organizations operate multi-cloud environments!

The EMEA region leading the adoption of multi-cloud proudly displays 88% against 87% in the Americas and 86% in the Asia-Pacific region.

For 27%, more than half of the apps will be in the cloud by the end of 2020. And for 54%, the cloud, in all its forms, is the strategic trend for the next two to five years.

The Cloud approach

But, how are these companies approaching the Cloud? EMEA companies decide on a cloud provider on a case-by-case basis, depending on application constraints rather than being locked into a framework contract with a single provider (43% – 42% worldwide).

In addition to 70% (EMEA), it is very important to “be able to deploy and apply the same security policies on-premises and in the cloud”.

Compliance and migration!

33% cite regulatory compliance as “the biggest challenge” in managing applications in multi-cloud environments.

In addition, for 28%, the migration of applications from their data center to the cloud represents a “serious challenge”.

The “Security” question

As for the answers to counter application attacks in the public cloud:

  • 15% say they are “very confident”
  • 30% are more secure when their applications are hosted in their own data center
  • 20% in shared accommodation

While 66% of EMEA organizations lack the necessary security skills, US companies have 65% and the Asia-Pacific region 76%.
