Cloud or Fog? Two-thirds of CIOs and CFOs Not Yet Sold on Cloud

June 12, 2009

NTT Europe Online Cloud Computing Report published…

“Unfortunately cloud has become a technical sell rather than a business and operational discussion, which is where the value really lies.  There is certainly demand for online software and service delivery within a secure hosted environment or using a ‘private cloud’ infrastructure, but in a practical sense the classic shared cloud computing model seems not to be on the board’s agenda.”

“Given the model’s lack of maturity, it’s understandable that businesses are waiting to see how cloud computing pans out for early adopters. What is quite evident from our research is that CIOs and CFOs are crying out for the capex vs. opex benefits that can be delivered by cloud-based and managed hosted solutions.  If the security and reliability concerns can be ironed out, cloud computing has a bright future – but until then, it will continue to be a work in progress.”
