2nd July 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, July 2, 2013: Oracle announced the results of a “Cloud for Business Managers: the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” report, which found that the majority of businesses around the world have not yet adequately integrated their cloud applications across their business functions. Due to this, many have reported operational inefficiencies and challenges around innovation.

The independent market research report by Dynamic Markets interviewed 1,355 senior decision makers from businesses globally. Respondents were selected from a wide range of business functions including R&D, Sales/Commerce/E-commerce, Marketing, CRM, Finance and HR.

Oracle report found that in India:

‒      Irrespective of an organization’s cloud adoption status, 74% companies have a cloud strategy in place and are prepared to take the leap into cloud.

‒      78% of companies that use cloud applications say their ability to innovate using their cloud apps has been hindered in some way. The research shows that the main hindrance is the inability to integrate the cloud app with other software and companies have abandoned roughly 1 cloud app a year due to integration problems. Globally this number is 75%

‒      Integration problems are causing staff downtime in departments that do not even use cloud apps. In fact, according to the respondents:

  • 25% said that their companies tried using cloud apps, attempted integration and were completely unsuccessful in their efforts
  • 47% believed they were only partially successful
  • 38% did not anticipate the integration issues when the company first started using the cloud apps
  •  31% put the company off using cloud apps because of integration troubles

‒     With the increasing usage of mobile gadgets, the usability of business applications on mobile devices is becoming a key concern. 44% Indian executives are disappointed by the non-availability of cloud apps on mobile phones.

‒      63% respondents cited usability issues. Across departments, those in risk / compliance roles stand out with 61% complaining of usability issues, as do 41% of finance professionals, 41% of HR and 39% of those in sales, marketing and customer services / CRM roles.
