in Cloud Computing
When I want to read in bed, I press a button and a light goes on. When I want to fry an egg, I turn the dial on my stove and it gets hot. When I want to take a shower - I just do it. I don't have my own electricity generator or my own natural gas source or a water purifying plant. Why would I? I just want the end product. So why do I have an IT department?
We love the cloud. It frees up business to get better at business instead of getting better at IT.
But as businesses become more enthusiastic to embrace and exploit the cloud it is becoming more evident that along with cloud computing comes a complex chain of accountability.
