This IDC study examines the importance of building regulatory compliance in the cloud. In today's environment, it is not only possible but often preferable to run regulated workloads in a public cloud environment, and IT leaders around the world are recognizing this trend. In today's environment, very few technology leaders consider regulatory and compliance issues to be inhibitors to the adoption of public cloud services or private cloud technologies.
"Compliance has come to the cloud," says Mike Chapple, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "Enterprises planning a large-scale cloud migration should absolutely consider regulated workloads as part of the pool of candidate services to operate in the cloud. Those that already completed cloud migration projects but held back regulated workloads should reexamine that decision and consider the potential technical and compliance benefits of migrating those workloads as well."
