One of the issues information technology managers raise about cloud computing Ã¢ÂÂ as well as the overlapping Ã¢ÂÂbring your own deviceÃ¢ÂÂ phenomenon Ã¢ÂÂ is that the stuff end-users bring into the workplace sooner or later become ITÃ¢ÂÂs headache. It may be the security issues that are introduced, it may be the support issues that crop up when users run to their IT departments for help when things stop working.

Few technologies have affected the IT industry as profoundly as cloud computing, which delivers computing as a service or utility. Part of cloud's appeal is clearly financial; it allows organizations to shed at least some of their expensive IT infrastructure and shift computing costs to more manageable operational expenses.The cloud also eases much of the technological burden involved with IT systems support and maintenance, helping companies focus on the productive business use of their workloads rather than on underlying systems and software.
