65% of Taiwanese Companies in the Manufacturing Industry Concerned about Information Security When Adopting Cloud: MIC
August 25, 2022

Taiwan's IT research institute MIC (Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute) conducted surveys in late 2021 with an aim to present estimates of IT spending in five major industries in Taiwan, including manufacturing, construction, finance, merchandise (retail & wholesale), and healthcare. The findings are based on data from MIC's IT Spending Survey conducted in late 2021. Hundreds of IT companies in Taiwan were asked a series of questions about their spending patterns, habits, and plans.

The MIC's findings suggest that Information security (65%) is the biggest concern for the majority of companies in the manufacturing industry when it comes to cloud adoption. Procurement and maintenance costs (51%) are also a major concern for more than half of companies in the survey. More than 10% are worried about hardware and software interoperability, product performance, internal IT workforce availability, the time required to install systems, and product usability.
