1‘High Cloud Exposure’ Companies Gain Scalability, Security Advantages
While cloud investment has emerged as common among organizations today, business and IT leaders in highly committed cloud companies are seeing a wide range of operational and competitive advantages, according to a recent survey from Oracle and Intel. The resulting “Cloud Insights” report indicates that, in general, these migrations bring greater scalability, agility and collaboration. And, in comparing “high cloud exposure” enterprises to their less exposed counterparts, additional benefits include improved software development, DevOps integration and cyber-threat detection. A total of 730 global C-suite and IT executives took part in the research. This slide show presents key findings from the survey, with charts provided courtesy of Oracle and Intel.

3Data Analytics and Cyber-Security Initiatives Underway
In citing top cloud initiatives, 93 percent of survey respondents said they have either already migrated data analytics to the cloud or plan to do so within three years. Just over nine of 10 said they have either already migrated the management of IT security to the cloud or plan to do so within three years.

10Cloud Drives Automated Analytics
“High cloud exposure” organizations also gain advantages with analytics, as 65 percent of survey respondents at these companies said their analytics are mostly automated and/or enabled by machine learning. In contrast, only 28 percent of those in “lower cloud exposure” companies said this was the case for them.
11Cyber-Security Thrives Via Migrations
Nearly two-thirds of respondents in “high cloud exposure” companies rate their cyber-security threat detection capabilities as “good” or “very good.” Just one-half of “medium cloud exposure” and 38 percent of “lower cloud exposure” organizations made the same claim.
