BENEFITS, REQUIRED SKILLS, PRIVACY CONCERNS REGARDING CLOUD COMPUTING By Dr. Vipul V. Makodia

Abstract

IT organizations face unprecedented challenges. Internal business customers continue to demand rapid delivery of innovative services to respond to outside threats and opportunities. Hamstrung by limited staff and budget, IT struggles to keep up, often exhausting resources simply trying to respond to changing business requests. In this tense environment, the options have been few: delay innovation that fuels the business or allow business users to procure services without IT oversight that ensures reliability, security, compliance and governance standards are met for the business. At the core of IT’s challenges is a perennial cycle where maintaining existing systems consumes the majority of budgets, leaving little to reinvest in growing the business. That’s why an increasing number of IT organizations leverage cloud technology to break this cycle and unlock resources to fuel innovation.

Keywords: Cloud computing, security, compliance, IT organizations.
