If you’ve visited any cloud computing service websites lately, then you’ve probably marveled at how fast and easy it was to switch your business to cloud computing. And did you hear about how much money you could save?
But the truth is – moving to cloud computing might be slightly harder than you think. A consultancy firm named KPMG International published a report called Cloud Survey which states that the security challenges and costs of transitioning to cloud computing are harder than many people think.
The survey polled business owners who had recently transitioned to cloud computing. When asked if the costs were higher than expected, most of those polled said that the costs were higher than expected and the security problems more extensive.
So if you were thinking of transitioning to cloud computing in the near future, be sure to thoroughly ask your computing service how much the transition costs and what kinds of security risks might be involved. It could save you lots of headaches and money.
