At this week's SAP World event in London, V3.co.uk caught up with customers on their plans when it comes to the cloud.
SAP has stated that it will offer firms a hybrid model of IT applications, to support customers whether they are implementing on-premise or on-demand software.
SAP users such as Nationwide and Johnson & Johnson, as well as those from government and smaller firms, discuss their thoughts on software-as-a-service.
The majority of firms we interviewed still believe enterprise critical applications should be kept on-premise, and are afraid the cloud lacks security, although some were excited to be leading the way with a new approach to IT.
