Extending IT Governance From Private to Hybrid Clouds through Consistency and Portability

April 20, 2011 No Comments

Public cloud resources can augment in-house IT in many useful ways. In fact, they can be so useful and easy to consume that we see public clouds widely used in organizations without going through the usual IT processes and procedures—indeed, that’s often sort of the point. Ad hoc cloud adoption can make sense. However, when production applications or critical data is involved, it’s important to extend on-premise governance to these public or hybrid resources.

IT shouldn’t try to stop public clouds—not that they likely could even if they wanted to. But by working with their users, IT can make an organization’s use of public and hybrid clouds a useful complement to in-house IT rather than a renegade operation that increases an organization’s risks and costs.
