Cloud - Private cloud seeding internal turmoil

Posted by CIO Talk Radio onin IT Infrastructure and Operations

A rainmaker is someone who excels at bringing in business. While not a person, cloud computing has certainly seeded lots of new IT service providers looking for a piece of the action, not only externally, but internally. Outsourcing some services can be efficient but that also means there is less control over data, while keeping everything internal can require significant investment and involve risks. So ultimately, the real question comes down to what the future shape of private cloud computing will be.

First of all, how do you define your “services?” Does it make sense to outsource certain data center service needs, or should internal IT become more cloud like? Does it make sense to create a private cloud as a sandbox for unique initiatives designed to create competitive advantage, or for IT areas that are in constant flux?
