Enterprises face more competition now than ever before. Innovative business models are disrupting the market, forcing even the largest organizations to radically transform the way they do business. Corporations need to innovate to stay ahead of the competition, deliver new services to attract and retain new customers, and keep their costs as low as possible.
At the ...heart of these projects lies a company’s cloud. A well-designed cloud oﬀers business decision-makers incredible levels of agility, which creates the opportunity for constant innovation through the rapid, iterative development of new services and business models. At the same time, IT gains increased operational efficiency while still meeting performance, cost, and elasticity requirements.
However, businesses must consider information security, regulatory compliance, server geolocations, geo-fencing, and trust as they build their virtualized cloud infrastructures. While these technologies can speed operations and reduce costs, they also introduce unique risks for security and compliance that companies need to address. They directly impact data privacy and governance, because virtual workloads and their data may move among departments and geographies.
