The time is now to move to the cloud, but there are 3 reasons why businesses are hesitant to make the move.  Peter Sjoberg of Hitachi Data systems explains why it's time to make the move.

So why are businesses holding back?
Reason #1: Security and Privacy
68% of businesses are concerned about cloud security and privacy, and rightly so.  But experts concur that security in the cloud is actually better than legacy systems.

Reason #2: IT Inertia
Businesses have a large amount of resources invested in legacy systems, but these must be evaluated with the future in mind.

Reason #3: I don't know where to start!
