The Cloud’s Tipping Point
— I always enjoy hearing from those of you who have come to the conclusion that cloud computing will not work, and decided you will not be developing plans to shift your business to the Cloud.
Sometimes the analysis is sound. More often than not, it omits key variables.
Perhaps you relied too much on vendor input for key variables in your analysis, or on your own in-house staff that may not necessarily have the skills, experience, or vested interest in such analysis. After all, how often do they undertake such an analysis in the first place? How well does it compare to an unbiased, independent consultant?
As I mentioned in, “Cloud Computing Economics: 40-80% Savings in the Cloud?“, your best bet is an independent analysis by an objective 3rd party.
Though instead of debating the merits of an analysis, the extent of cost savings, or other business benefits of migrating to the Cloud, I would like you to consider an another perspective.
