Cloud in Action Interview: From Cloud Skeptical to Cloud First

I posted an interview yesterday on the Sandhill.com blog with an IT thought leader in the financial services industry: From Cloud Skeptical to Cloud Curious to Cloud First. A few highlights:

“In the past I wasn’t building and managing infrastructure in the cloud, but rather using applications to perform end-user tasks. With the evolution of solutions like Amazon Web Services (AWS), salesforce.com and Informatica Cloud, my thinking has evolved to the point where I believe corporations can build out their entire application infrastructure in the Public Cloud. ”

“….the only obstacles to businesses moving applications to the cloud right now are:

  • Cost
  • Connectivity Speed
  • Lack of familiarity on behalf of in-house IT teams”
