Talent not Security is now the #1 Cloud Challenge

talentIMHO, this is the most important insight from Rightscale’s 2016 State of the Cloud Survey. Lack of resources/expertise has supplanted security as the top challenge in cloud.

We see this in so many ways. It’s probably one of the most important reasons customers buy our product.

They’re simply don’t have enough talented I.T. resources. People are too busy maintaining legacy systems or worrying about the SQL database to spend time on automating the routine stuff, making it look beautiful and usable on all devices. Frustrated business people turn to solutions like frevvo – we obsess about the user interface and make it easier and easier to meet talent2key business requirements like electronic signatures and PDF generation (Government W-4) using fewer scarce resources.

Interestingly, another key area is the intersection of talent & security. Customers simply don’t have sufficient expertise in their organizations to understand Cloud Security. Automated workflows in frevvo’s Cloud are far more useful if they can integrate with internal systems (authentication, database etc.). We offer several well-tested mechanisms for this integration. But, it’s common to hit a roadblock inside the organization. And, it’s understandable – security breaches can have a devastating impact and everyone knows who will get blamed. Luckily, as companies gain more experience with the Cloud, they’re understanding security better and it’s less of an issue.

Talent is increasingly scarce across the board – from coding (especially UX) to security to analytics. Whether you’re large or small. In all industries. You have to get rid of daily inefficiencies and focus your talent where they can make a difference.
