Our 2nd Report: Meeting the challenges of cloud computing – Accenture Outlook

http://www.accenture.com/SiteCollectionDocuments/PDF/Accenture-Outlook-Meeting-the-challenges-of-cloud-computing.pdf

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 w.venters@lse.ac.uk

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.
