Our second Accenture report on Cloud Computing is about to be published! As a taster the above link takes you to a short synopsis (Published in the Accenture Outlook Points of View series). I will post a link to the full report when it is out.
While in danger of providing a summary on a summary, this second report builds on our first “Promise of Cloud Computing” report to analyse the challenges faced by a move to cloud. We identify the following key challenges:
Challenge #1: Safeguarding data security
Challenge #2: Managing the contractual relationship
Challenge #3: Dealing with lock-in
Challenge #4: Managing the cloud
Once you read the paper I would love to hear your views – please use the add comments link at the bottom of this section (its quite small!) or email me directly on firstname.lastname@example.org
I would also suggest you also review the whole report when it is out – much of the important detail is missing from this shorter synopses.
