Ever evolving cloud computing technologies and solutions have been transforming the IT scenario across the globe at a fast pace. Still, enterprises need to plan their cloud migration in a well-devised manner so they can make the most out of it, and successfully address the rapidly changing market challenges.
Forbes, well known for offering a stream of resources comprising valuable insight into a range of business sectors, has launched a set of guidelines that will help enterprises in establishing enhanced cloud computing for 2013.
Next year will be an important phase for the cloud computing sector, as more and more companies have been showing their interest and faith in the new technology. Cloud computing considerably cuts down the operating costs and enhances overall business productivity.
While a number of enterprises worldwide have been meeting these challenges successfully using various cloud computing solutions, some of them have yet to realize their potential through this technology.
During 2013, deployment of cloud computing at the top corporate levels will be one of the most notable and worthwhile trends, reveals Forbes. Business strategists comprising chief information officers (CIOs), who keep a constant track of what has been proving to be helpful for their peers in the industry, will be the pioneers in pushing this trend forward
Further, these executives have also been finalizing their cloud computing plans for the year 2013 and prefer to go for options that offer maximum benefits to the enterprises, apart from entailing minimum risks. Additionally, proper planning for the use of cloud computing platforms enables them to leverage the best out of these technologies, taking the customer, supplier and internal efficiency standpoints into account.
As a result of the consistent analysis and evaluation of these cloud computing planning efforts, the CIOs have arrived at certain conclusions, one of which stresses that a hybrid IT architecture offering both agility and security can effectively prove to be a vital step toward maturing the cloud computing needs of companies.
The challenges of security, legacy system integration and licensing negatively affect the adoption rate of subscription-based models of services and solutions, though they do offer streamlined and high-speed deployment with the flexibility of customization as well.
Top information executives working in the manufacturing and financial services industries have repeatedly voiced this issue. It is one of the main reasons there’s still dwindling trust in most of the manufacturing companies for moving the entire IT infrastructure to a cloud-based infrastructure.
Earlier this month, Lieberman Software Corporation revealed in a survey that most IT experts relying on a cloud computing model don’t always depend on it for sensitive information, and prefer to use it only for carrying out their professional responsibilities.
When it comes to personal data, a little over half of them prefer to keep it on their own devices.
