This was following an article I wrote about research commissioned by Google. It revealed that 64% said cloud computing is more beneficial than traditional outsourcing.
So far I have had 8 respondents. Half said yes and half said no.
I also asked for people to give a reason for their answer.
The four that said no gave the following reasons:
1 - "Hidden costs and security get you every time"
2 - "It's a different way to achieve a contracted result. The means by which this result is achieved is of little interest, as long as it's supported by sufficient safeguards."
3 - "Data location and ensuring data protection can be a major issue for many businesses."
4 - "Client loses even more control than with outsourcing."
I want to write an analysis about this so would appreciate feedback from readers. Please take time to fill in the questionnaire below.
