Moving legacy data and other assets to the cloud is perceived by many organizations as a way to better manage risks, improve efficiency, trim costs and comply with regulatory requirements.
As many legacy technologies were designed for on-premises use, migrating them to the cloud can be a challenging process.
A recent report from migration software provider Archive360 looks at the obstacles and concerns over cloud migrations of legacy data.
Only 35% of the respondents store more than half of their legacy app data in the cloud.
80.5% of them said that migrating their legacy data to the cloud is a priority over the next 12 months or less.
Some 59% cited the cloud as a way to centrally manage the archiving of all data including data from Office 365.
