3 deep, dark secrets of cloud computing
The promise of cloud computing is that you, the customer, doesn't ever have to buy another server, back up another disk drive or worry about another software upgrade. All those promises are true — and now there are multimillion-dollar companies without a single server closet. Unfortunately, too often cloud applications and services are bought by people who really shouldn't be buying. Sure, they may have the budget — did you hear Gartner's prediction that the CMO will spend more on tech than the CIO by 2017? But that doesn't mean they necessarily have the training to make good IT decisions, let alone the discipline or skills in their underlings to actually execute a coordinated technology strategy.
