For the third year in a row, cloud computing is one of the top three technology investments for CIOs. However, there are many misconceptions of “the cloud”. I have encountered five common myths or misconceptions. It’s high time to debunk them.
With technology’s ability to mine speech patterns of corporate, political, and social leaders, the old proverb; “A careless talker destroys himself”, rings truer than ever.
With so precious few IT dollars to support experimentation with new technologies, it makes sense why pay-per-use cloud computing options are so alluring.
Over the long-run, is cloud computing a waste of money? Some startups and other “asset lite” businesses seem to think so. However, cloud computing for specific use cases, makes a lot of sense—even over the long haul.
With the rise of peer-to-peer sharing, it also makes sense that cloud computing—which is compute and storage “resource pooling” and renting—would also gain traction. But just as there are risks in sharing property and other assets, there are also risks in sharing cloud computing infrastructures.
