Week 1 ISACA Cloud Governance Project
Welcome to the first week of our Cloud Computing Governance Project.
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 resiliance both in support of cloud and in pointing out problems. Very little has been presented in terns of governance. Cloud discussions have mostly been focused on tactical and management aspcets of cloud rather than starting with governance considerations.
Our first discussion will get us all thinking about cloud computing, what it is, and what the governance considerations are. Cloud is often described from the vantage point of the supplier rather than the subscriber. Cloud is defined in terms of how it is offered; as an infrastructure, as a platform, or as a service. Cloud is also described in terms of where it is deployed; internally, externally and in a hybrid method.
Question 1: What is cloud computing?
Question 2: How does cloud computing differ from other approaches to IT deployment and what are the governance implications of these differences?
Thanks for participating in this discussion.
