From the second e-Activity, suggest what you believe are the two (2)
most beneficial characteristics of cloud-computing from an
organizational perspective. Further, explain at least one (1) challenge
an organization could potentially face when implementing an existing
in-house application or system into the cloud. Justify your response.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Data security- The main security benefits of cloud computing are the improved security software mechanisms and security maintenance. Cloud providers have the capacity to develop more sophisticated security software. In addition, cloud customers, especially of SaaS, do not have to care about the security maintenance as the entire maintenance is executed by provider. Besides, they get the latest security software updates autocratically
Cost effectiveness- Cost reductions are the key driver for a cloud computing implementation. A big role for the cost reductions within organizations plays elasticity of cloud services.The major part of cost reductions currently comes from reducing the staff, unlike as it used to be in the past when it used to come from the hardware and software.
The main problem is software incompatibility
