Cloud computing has been around for a while now. When correctly implemented, its scalability and flexibility increases productivity, saving both time and money. But although the cloud is still being touted as the future of IT, many organizations have yet to adopt it. And, really, who can blame them? Private, public, hybrid, and not to mention all of the “as a service” options – it’s hard to know which one is a right fit for your organization.
With the cloud and any new-to-you technology, it’s important to do your research before making the leap so that you can reap the benefits; otherwise, you risk losing any money and time that you have invested in it.
To help you get started, we’ve created a quiz that will test your own knowledge of the cloud before you move to adoption. It’s a great jumping off point for getting the cloud conversation started.
After taking the quiz, be sure to check out these other cloud-related posts on IT Business Edge. In “The Cloud: Not Just the Same Old IT,” Arthur Cole breaks down why the cloud is different from internal data environments. Also, it might be good to pass out these cloud-specific terms and definitions so that IT and the business side are on the same page. And, last but not least, this slideshow looks at why it’s important to consider your network before moving to the cloud.
