Cloud computing has arrived and it is time now to welcome the change with open arms before the phenomenon starts looming like a dark cloud waiting to break into a storm over the unprepared.
There is a general indecisiveness over shifting entirely to the cloud. This is fueled by factors which if identified seem like a weak basis to make decisions upon. Some of them are:
- Employees working on legacy spaghetti who have little or no awareness of how cloud works or sense a threat to job security if their employers shift to cloud computing
- Top Management don’t have examples to follow and study in terms of resource utilization efficiency, cost minimization and improvement in data security.
- The non existence of a standardized procedure for implementation of the cloud, undefined legalities and regulations.
- The general lack of understanding and knowledge in terms of what the cloud is, how it works, how data is stored without having a specific physical location.
If these can be called disadvantages the advantages overcome them many times over. An interesting info-graphic from wikibon below can help us see that.
The ramifications of delaying moving to cloud will be severe as when cloud takes over, and it will, there will be too much to do in too little a time. It is just a matter of time which moves really fast in the world of technology.
The biggest shocker is the fact that most of us work in the cloud everyday. Web services like Facebook, Gmail, DropBox, Apple iCloud, LinkedIn, Disqus, Salesforce, Amazon Webservices, Hotmail, Box.Net, Twitter and many more are already being used by companies and employees around the globe.
THE CLOUD COMPUTING STRATOSPHERE
Therefore as proponents of the new movement it is necessary not only to encourage businesses to start training their personnel who are currently only comfortable using conventional systems but also work towards hiring cloud trained personnel.
At the same time it is important to educate and spread awareness among the top management regarding the simplicity of the structure, the advantages in terms of security and resource utilization and to develop at least a partly standardized process to make the move from legacy spaghetti to the cloud. The most important variable that might impress them might be the extent to which cloud can positively affect their margins.
