Cloud Computing: Boon or Bane?

A reflection on the governance aspect of cloud computing is required to weigh its pros and cons to ensure an appropriate and a secure management system

A lot has been written about cloud computing and the benefits it provides in terms of agility in deploying technology and also in terms of cost savings. A great deal has also been written about security, privacy, compliance, and resilience, both in support of cloud and in pointing out problems. Very little has been presented in terms of governance. Mostly, cloud discussions have been focused on tactical and management aspects of cloud rather than starting with governance considerations.
