A successful journey to the cloud
Private clouds, public clouds, hybrid clouds - to be quite honest, it's just a lot of vendor jargon. If your organization pays a fee to access a service that's delivered in real time over the Internet – then you've already had a taste of what the cloud can offer. Cloud computing can provide outstanding value, enabling your organization to scale and enhance IT capabilities without investing in new infrastructure, training new personnel or licensing new software. There are downsides though, and understanding them can help you make the best choice to ensure that when you journey to the cloud, you keep your organization from being struck by lightning!
ISO standards for cloud computing are in the draft phase so it's still very much the responsibility of customers to investigate both the quality of and reliability of cloud providers. The regulatory environment for cloud services varies by location and that determines how your data is handled and who has access to it. To control your digital world you must be able to use cloud services and solutions in ways that effectively support the objectives of your core operations, without compromising on data security.
