This IDC Perspective describes common concerns CIOs express as they contemplate making the move from traditional on-prem IT architectures to cloud computing models. The document shows that these concerns are generally offset by the benefits that come from the move, including increased agility, frictionless feature updates, and the capacity and power that exceeds the typical datacenter. Guidance is provided for starting points for CIOs to consider as they take the first steps.
"Transition to cloud computing makes possible the innovations imagined by digital transformation. First steps can be quick, easy, and cheap compared with traditional monolithic IT initiatives — but don't keep attention to security and compliance on a back burner." — Cora Carmody, adjunct research advisor, IDC
