IT professionals fear loss of control when it comes to cloud computing – Ireland’s cloud news service –

From a survey of 4,500 IT professionals, this article compares the “risk perception” variation between public, private and hybrid #clouds.  Unfortunately, the loss of IT control is the driver to these “risk” results.

Recommendation to IT:  When comparing cloud risk to traditional outsourcer risk, the difference is minimal. If IT remains overly focused on cloud risk/control, business units will move to the cloud without IT, much as marketing moved to social media on their own.  The only difference this time is that cloud transcends job functions and business and not only social media budgets will follow the cloud, but more and more IT budget will follow as well.
