Microsoft survey reveals most common misconceptions of cloud services in Singapore

Microsoft Singapore recently revealed the results of a survey of 2,017 Microsoft partners in 11 countries across Asia Pacific who shared the most common misconceptions about cloud services still prevalent among their customers. In the online survey, Microsoft’s partners ranked the misconceptions most commonly brought up by their customers and prospects about the cloud and shared their outlook on the growth of their cloud business.
Out of the 2,017 respondents, 125 were from Singapore. The Singapore respondents ranked misconceptions similarly as compared to Asia Pacific respondents.
The top five myths are: Lack of privacy, Not secure, Not mature, No ownership and Being less productive offline. Other misconceptions were around cost and reliability, the lack of value-add compared to on premise versions, that it is too complicated and the lack of a clear return on investment.
In response to these insights, Microsoft is working to debunk each of these myths through education and providing access to resources such as the Office 365 Trust Center website.
