The CIOs said that integrations between on-premise and cloud applications are gaining steam and the hybrid approach enables employees who work off-site to access data.
About 52% of CIOs said on-premise solutions are more secure than cloud-based and institutional barriers are prominent for 75% of non-hybrid cloud CIOs.
Gartner analyst Nigel Rayner said the allure of the cloud means many organisations are adopting cloud-based applications that augment on-premises ERP and are increasingly moving core elements of ERP to the cloud.
"CIOs and ERP leaders need to be prepared with an integration strategy that anticipates this world of hybrid ERP," Rayner said.
SAP said it is collaborating with CIOs to build cloud strategies that protect and leverage existing investments in on-premise applications while offering business flexibility.
Last month, a study sponsored by NTT Europe has found that about 81% of CIOs believe their own ICT architecture is the greatest hurdle to cloud adoption.
