Major Concern in Hybrid Cloud
This is an important topic, worthy of attention and consideration.  However, I think there are a number of false premises or assumptions, either in the report or in the minds of those that responded to the poll. 

There is always room for ambiguity to play, when we over-commit complicated ideas to simple expressions, such as "the cloud".  To begin with, cloud is style as well as place.  Many of the desirable attributes of public cloud derive from cloud as style - so are available when cloud style is applied to a private place.  Many of the less desirable features of public cloud can be avoided by not putting everything in the public place (or using "public transportation" of data). 

The article and the report seem to suggest hybrid cloud as a combination of public cloud (style, place and transport), and legacy style and infrastructure in a private place - a place soon to be abandoned as soon as the moving van is ready to roll on to "The Cloud".  However, hybrid cloud can also be a reimagining of information systems to utilize the best tools for the various tasks required to properly inform those you authorize - and not inform those you don't.
