Cloud Computing Challenges: getting the execution right to deliver on the promises
There is no doubt that cloud computing is a promising new solution for reducing infrastructure costs and increasing business agility. With that said, it is like most new technologies thatlook good on the paper: the devil will be in the execution. Among some of the challenges that await companies as they investigate and adopt cloud computing models, the following few stand out:
- To deliver on its promises, cloud computing has to become the heavy-lifting infrastructure of business line applications. But are all applications ready to be moved to the cloud? At what cost?
- New technologies create new challenges, and when it comes to cloud computing, a key issue remains unsolved: what will data governance look like in a cloud enabled world?
- Like all other technologies before it, cloud computing success will strongly depend on user's adoption. How can organizations guarantee that their users will quickly and willingly move to a cloud-based business application infrastructure?
