The vast majority of CIOs are worried that cloud computing is reducing their organisation’s control over IT and creating long-term security risks.

That’s according to an independent survey of UK CIOs from enterprises with over 1,000 employees by market researchers at Vanson Bourne on behalf of Fruition Partners. The research found that 84 per cent of CIOs are worried that cloud is causing them to lose control over IT.

Nonetheless, many CIOs see the benefits of using cloud computing and are in the process of migrating more and more of their services into the cloud.

The survey also reveals that 89 per cent of CIOs don’t apply the same IT service management (ITSM) processes to services running in the public cloud as they do for IT services that have been built in-house.
