CIOs today have the cloud on their minds. From cloud-based support services to tools designed to improve productivity, the cloud has become an important tool in ensuring a company is operating to the best of its ability. In fact, the cloud has become so important that it’s more uncommon now to not see a company using something Web-based than for them to be using the cloud. However, not everyone is sold on the cloud. In fact, in a new study from the Cloud Security Alliance and ISACA, a provider of certifications and education on information systems, IT managers discussed their current troubles with cloud solutions. Those respondents also expressed frustration with the state of the cloud-services space for enterprise users, indicating that over time, things have not improved. The study sheds some light on the dark side of the cloud – and one that doesn’t often get much attention. As the study indicates, the cloud has benefits and can be useful. But in some cases, it can be a real pain point for organizations.

The chief reason a company might adopt the cloud is to enable enhanced business activity, according to data from ISACA and the Cloud Security Alliance.
