Don’t take cloud security for granted

Stephen Withers, IT Wire, Dec. 14, 2020

“Compliance is important, and those involved need to understand risks and what’s required in terms of reporting and auditability.

It’s also important to understand the shared responsibility model. For example, a cloud provider will ensure the physical security of its data centres, but it’s up to the clients to control access to their systems.”

Preparing for 2021: The acceleration of the cloud

Jenny Darmody, Silicon Republic, Dec. 14, 2020

“As businesses look ahead to 2021, Bouguen said that cloud computing must be a business agenda. ‘Considering cloud computing as an IT-only topic creates a risk in not being agile enough to adapt to the rapid evolution of the society,’ he said.

‘Cloud computing must activate the full power of organisation and ecosystem to unlock operational efficiencies and create new revenue streams in response to changing market dynamics. As companies rethink their business, they must look for opportunities to reuse existing capabilities to drive new revenue streams and continually test and learn to turn their strategic bets into outcomes.’”

What distributed cloud means for businesses

Katie Malone, CIO Dive, Dec. 14, 2020

“Flourishing at a 17% compound annual growth rate in the cloud market, hybrid cloud, multicloud and edge computing environments are setting the stage for a distributed model, but businesses strategizing for the future require a clean cloud strategy to realize the benefits, according to Smith. 

By 2024, Gartner predicts most cloud service platforms will provide at least some distributed cloud services that execute at the point of need.”
