My IDG colleague Juan Carlos Perez discovered that NSA snooping is not prompting enterprises to their scotch their cloud plans. Quite the opposite. Why?

The cloud is just too compelling and if enterprises shy away, they risk becoming non-competetive. In short, the benefits of the cloud outweigh the negatives.

I came across a blog post that describes seven ways Big Data will "revolutionize" our lives by 2020. Skepticism is perhaps my most common reaction because such predictions often feel more like cheerleading than insightful analysis.

While legal and technical aspects of the cloud journey are important, the first consideration is what will run on that cloud.    

Recently, I was presenting to the IT strategy team of a large enterprise. I talked about the journey to cloud, what are the things you should review and what decisions should you take. Very quickly, the discussion boiled down to technology and legal aspects.

A good year ago I was in Quebec, and let me disclose something here … speaking French, I’m really welcome out there. We had a wonderful time. One of the customers we met was a local bank. Their IT team wanted to experiment with cloud and we convinced them that cloud enabling their development environment made a lot of sense.

It's the oft overlooked aspect of Big Data - data governance.

That's the conclusion of the new survey of 454 organizations, which collectively revealed that while 82% have external regulatory requirements, fully 44% did not have a "defined data governance policy."

However, 50% responded that they will take some sort of data governance action within the next 12 months. As such, data governance has emerged as a mainstream issue. The two key elements of data governance are backup and recovery. In the survey, 75% said they are not happy with their backup solutions.

At the same time, the vendor needs to be "knee deep" in the customer's business. The vendor has to be there 24x7 for the customer, says Veghte.
