Cloud computing: A reality check and guide to risk mitigation
This white paper provides a reality check on cloud computing from the perspective of an IT organisation. This paper will:
- Identify the current and planned use of public and private cloud computing solutions;
- Identify the issues that IT organisations need to consider before making either an initial or additional use of public or private cloud computing solutions.
One of the advantages of identifying the current and planned use of any technology or approach to providing IT services is that is enables IT organisations to see how their approach compares to that of their peers. That is important because most IT organisations do not want to be too far outside of the mainstream.
Unfortunately, cloud computing is inherently risky. As such, some early adopters of cloud computing will experience problems, which, in a few instances are likely to be severe.
