Many leading corporations are now revealing plans to go “cloud first”, meaning when building a corporate information system, do not own computers and software on their own, but consider usage of external “cloud” service on a priority basis.
However the introduction to the cloud is not easy. Stream of new services are hitting the scene, but comprehending the characteristics of each service is difficult, and the common practice for system construction and operation does not translate to the world of cloud, leading to trouble.
