suggest what you believe are the2 most beneficial characteristic
of cloud computing from an organizational perspective.Explain
at least 1challenge an organization could potentially face when
implementing an existing in house application into cloud
1)Cloud computing provides on demand access to compute resources thus enabling organizations to provide and scale resources according to fluctuations in demand.
2) Service to customers can be greatly improved since capital cost is decreased,advanced technology can be used,bigger datasets can be manipulated and workload shifted as required.
A challenge an organization may face when implementing an existing in house application into cloud is the security risk which tags along when it has to be outsourced to public cloud service providers.
In cases of hybrid clouds ,the organization may use software as a service from a public clouds while handling the sensitive data in house(eg in government organizations) but the risk of data security still persists due to the interconnection of the services and sensitive data is at risk.
