Deciding to go cloud 09212010

  1. 1. Deciding to Go CloudData Modeling and Prototyping within Requirements GatheringProvides Transparent Roadmap to Cloud Computing Presented by Valeh Nazemoff of Acolyst September 21, 2010
  2. 2. Abstract Moving data to the cloud is a scary business pain more and more companies are facing. Businesses are concerned with how they can or should trust a third party to manage their enterprise’s data, worried about data breach issues, troubled about data privacy, and nervous with giving someone responsibility for their data yet still being accountable for it. Continuing to ask questions that demonstrate the mystery (and the pain) of the unfamiliar like: What data makes the most sense to move to the cloud? Where is the data? In this webinar we bring you a roadmap methodology to assess the business pain points with data management concerns that are involved with the decision of going Cloud. The roadmap helps determine which data should go cloud with an order of priority in the timeline, a step-by-step approach, and providing stakeholders and decision makers techniques and documentation to ease their decision making.
