Security Congress Abstract
Moving to the cloud always sounds so simple. Pick an application or service, hire a consulting organization and determine how to get the application and/or service operational. If it were only that easy...most organizations face three major hurdles in their move to the cloud.
Companies "take their mark" with a policy Cloud-First directive, user demand or IT budgetary constraints. Approaching the first hurdle...not only is the development team completely overwhelmed, they've now been tasked with a huge undertaking without the cloud knowledge needed to be successful. Overcoming the second hurdle begins once the risk or compliance departments get on-board, take notice or finally fail an audit based on the work from the new application. The final hurdle concludes with legal, contracts and human resources departments.
