I had a conversation today with an IT director at a very large company who listed these 7 criteria as essential when evaluating a cloud-based application, platform or infrastructure:
- Security Compliance
- Ownership of Data (Privacy)
- Extra Capacity (Scalability)
- Disaster Recovery
I thought it was a pretty good list. Not too different from the Forrester research on SaaS concerns.
Do you agree with the list? How would you prioritize it? What’s missing?
