re: Federal Cloud Crucial To Economy, Tech Chiefs Say
Thanks for the great article. It is very true. Cloud computing holds the answer to a lot of challenges that IT organizations face and will spur economic development on a global scale. However, getting there is not as easy as it sounds. One of the biggest challenges with Cloud adoption has to do with the diverse mix of technologies and the complexity inherent in the IT infrastructure. Take Configuration Management for example. The diverse mix of applications and their associated configuration settings (IBM Websphere has over 16,000 alone) need to be monitored at the granular level, as if just one one of these settings is off, it may lead to a system outage and subsequent downtime which can prove to be quite costly.
