Cloud Complexity and Security: Two Challenges of the Cloud for SAP Users

In 2017, ASUG and Syntax debunked the myths about the cloud. In 2018, ASUG and Syntax took a deeper look into common cloud challenges and identified cloud complexity and security as keys barrier to adoption.

As SAP users move more workloads to the cloud, it's becoming a major challenge to manage multiple cloud assets. Additionally, the belief about the cloud persists: security matters. Security greatly affects whether SAP customers experience a smooth road to the cloud or a rough one.

Uncertainty, Curiosity, and Optimism about the Cloud

Writer Bernard Beckett once said, “Human spirit is the ability to face the uncertainty of the future with curiosity and optimism. It is the belief that problems can be solved, differences resolved. It is a type of confidence. And it is fragile.”

When it comes to securing your data in the cloud, you should not let uncertainty and complexity damage your spirit.

In this whitepaper, you'll learn:

  • Inconsistent standards across cloud providers is a top area of concern, a challenge that wasn’t on the list of cloud issues companies identified for their cloud technology in 2017
  • The research says 27% of ASUG members with cloud workloads see security as a benefit, while 23% view it as a challenge
  • There is a direct correlation between security and cloud satisfaction for SAP users
