Re: 93% of cloud apps
@Brian: It might be even smaller than 7%. Don't forget that studies like that often have a "don't know/aren't sure" third option.

Re: 93% of cloud apps
I don't get how an organization can hope to document the details of how an app does what it does. I agree, most organizations have to go through a consolidation because they start deploying the apps to cloud.

Re: 93% of cloud apps
You can outsource, to a degree For me that is partially what is happening in the could, Wen basically outsource the responsibilities assuming all will work out.

Re: 93% of cloud apps
The goal is to provide and expose data only as it is required to accomplish specific tasks, on a per instance basis. This would do be a good deal for security experts. At the end of the day we need to protect the data.

Re: 93% of cloud apps
the details of how each app does what it does? This is a good questions, if the are not enterprise ready maybe they are not for enterprises.

Re: 93% of cloud apps
I don't know how comfortable we should even be with the 7% that are deemed "enterprise ready" I am surprise with the percentages too. That may also tell us that most apps in cloud are not that useful either.

93%?
That sounds a very high number. Most of the enterprises are using cloud currently. So are they at risk?

I completely agree! I don't get how an organization can hope to document the details of how an app does what it does. Although organizations like <a href="https://www.24-7locksmith.org/">24-7 Locksmith</a> do a really good job at stuff like this, so I don't think it's entirely futile. That's just me though!

93% of cloud apps
Concerned that so much of your organization's data and operations are dependent on services beyond your control?  Don't worry - "there's an app for that

I don't know how comfortable we should even be with the 7% that are deemed "enterprise ready".  At best, these have a good track record (up to the point when the survey was taken); but all are born of a dynamic process.  All we can say is that they've been Ok, so far - but that far might not reach the next update, compliance regulation or newly discovered vulnerability.  It's fair to credit some providers with having demonstrated effective remediation, when things have gone south, and for doing a better job of vetting their own providers and partners.  Yet, there are too many interdependencies to warrant unqualified trust.

With the quoted usage from hundreds to thousands, how can an organization hope to document, let alone comprehend, the details of how each app does what it does? 

The only viable recourse is to do a better job of data governance.  The goal is to provide and expose data only as it is required to accomplish specific tasks, on a per instance basis.  Before you can do that, you need a fact-based information system's model, at the conceptual level - one that reflects how your specific organization actually  processes data to carry out its business. 

You won't find that in a template, even one that's "customizable".  It's also not a process you can automate: it requires comprehension and judgement.  You can outsource, to a degree; but that service will have to know your business at least as well as you do - so only chose those with whom you feel comfortable being business partners, in the fullest sense.  One thing is certain - you won't find an app for that.
