According to Gartner, organizations are more likely to have a policy against sharing sensitive data with their business partners than with their cloud provider. But when it comes to sharing sensitive data, particularly with your cloud provider, one word comes to mind – Accountability. Your organization needs to be accountable for what data gets moved to the cloud and the state it’s in when it gets there (firewalls, encryption, policies, etc.).

App delivery versus IaaS: speed and response are what end users really want

Shadow IT and IaaS

From all my cloud related conversations, I’m gaining a strong impression two worlds are colliding. On the one hand, most of the CIOs I talk to are focused on providing infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), whether it is internally to their business users, or externally as service providers. But when I look around me and talk to end-users, they seem interested in the delivery of “applications.” Many of them don’t even talk about cloud; they rather discuss app download and functionality. I’d say this is close to what SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) represents.

Consumerization of IT and Big Data are interesting selections by InformationWeek editor Chris Murphy, but these choices are grounded in actual feedback from CIOs. Cloud ROI is no surprise because there's been a considerable body of research saying the cloud does not save money. The others are tech panaceas, outsourcing, business-tech misalignment and cloud ease-of-use.

In my last couple blog posts I outlined the difference between an IT-oriented versus a user-oriented cloud. An IT oriented cloud is one where infrastructure is provisioned to facilitate the installation of the application as and when a new instance of that application is required. It consists in the automation of the provisioning of the appropriate number of virtual and/or physical machines with the right configurations and the connection of those through secured networking with appropriate storage capacity. The installation of the target application can also be automated.

The promise of cloud computing is to reduce the cost of IT infrastructure assets and processes through lower operational expenses stemming from the cloud’s ability to allow organizations to purchase only the resources that are needed, when they need it. Large enterprise software applications are faced with stringent requirements related to performance, delay, and service uptimes.

The other week, I was drawn to an article from Jonathan Eunice on SearchCloudComputing titled “When an in-house IT infrastructure wins out over cloud computing.” I was puzzled so I eagerly started reading and quickly realized there was something odd with the article.
