When I highlight these use cases, I do not limit them to public cloud. Indeed, there is some nervousness about the use of public clouds for certain workloads in many parts of the world and the Prism subject does not change that. This article was written prior to the unfolding of the news. But if I had to write it today, it would look pretty similar. In each of the scenarios, companies have to ask themselves where to put what workload. Now we should also realize that "shadow-IT" typically leads to the use of public cloud services.

In vielen Gesprächen taucht die Frage nach dem Return on Investment (RoI) der Cloud auf. Viele Artikel sind über das Thema geschrieben worden, wobei jeder einen anderen Ansatz verfolgt.
