58% of respondents cited integration of Linux containers with existing development tools and processes as a barrier to adoption, while 55% identified data management issues and 54% said lack of skills as a barrier.
Red Hat senior vice president for infrastructure business Tim Yeaton said: Ultimately, containers represent a significant paradigm shift for enterprise application development and deployment, whether used to modernise existing applications to build net new web or cloud-native workloads, or enable DevOps.
"Large scale enterprise adoption can be accelerated by addressing enterprises’ concerns about security, management, and developing the right skills, and we stand ready to help organisations enter this new world of IT as an experienced and reliable partner."
The survey found that open source remains the dominant platform in the container world, with over 95% of respondents planning container development on the Linux operating system.
The survey of over 383 global IT decision makers and professionals was commissioned by Red Hat through independent research firm TechValidate.
