  4. 4. www.linuxit.com BUT THEY CAN BE OVERCOME THERE ARE ALWAYS BARRIERS TO INTRODUCING ANY NEW TECHNOLOGY
  5. 5. www.linuxit.com 1 BARRIER ONE - NIH* SYNDROME Organisations have legacy systems they have developed over many years in response to their particular needs. Staff who have developed it, operated it and worked late into the night fixing it feel an emotional attachment to it. * Not Invented Here
  6. 6. www.linuxit.com 1 BARRIER ONE - NIH* SYNDROME A Cloud can feel nebulous and remote, almost like it belongs to someone else.
  7. 7. www.linuxit.com 1 BARRIER ONE - NIH* SYNDROME You can’t own a Cloud but a good IT consultancy will work with your staff and break down this barrier to Cloud adoption by giving them ownership of your Cloud-based project.
  8. 8. www.linuxit.com 2 BARRIER TWO - LOSS OF CONTROL SysAdmins used to working in the same building as ‘their’ servers can feel they’ve been demoted to users on a Cloud system they don’t control or own at a physical level.
  9. 9. www.linuxit.com 2 BARRIER TWO - LOSS OF CONTROL Start small, add some Cloud servers for non-critical operations. A Linux systems management specialist can provide the tools your staff need to operate them, and training they need to build their careers. In future they may not have direct access to the hardware, but they will still be very much in control of the system.
  10. 10. www.linuxit.com 3 BARRIER THREE – DATA SECURITY Compliance and governance strike fear into executives hearts and are a serious barrier to Cloud adoption. Once an organisation has a policy in place and an in-house system that satisfies the regulations, change is difficult.
  11. 11. www.linuxit.com 3 BARRIER THREE – DATA SECURITY A specialist IT consultancy can help organisations with an existing data centre convert to a hybrid Cloud setup. Important data remains in-house and less problematic loads such as external websites, are moved to the external Cloud.
  12. 12. www.linuxit.com 3 BARRIER THREE – DATA SECURITY If you outgrow your private Cloud then data can be stored safely in a public Cloud. Applying best practice defined by the Cloud Controls Matrix will ensure that your data storage is fully secure.
  13. 13. www.linuxit.com 4 BARRIER FOUR – DATA PRIVACY Recent revelations about the activities of security agencies and some large corporations based overseas naturally make organisations here worry about who will have access to their data if it is processed in a Cloud. Especially if that Cloud floats off-shore.
  14. 14. www.linuxit.com 4 BARRIER FOUR – DATA PRIVACY You can control the physical location of your data. There are some UK-based organisations who can provide Cloud services with a guarantee that your data will not leave the UK.
  15. 15. www.linuxit.com 5 BARRIER FIVE – COST A common barrier to Cloud adoption is cost. Any service needs to be paid for every year, whereas traditional in-house provision is an investment that can be amortised over many years.
  16. 16. www.linuxit.com 5 BARRIER FIVE – COST If you have a data centre, keep it. Linux systems management specialists can help you transform it into a private Cloud system so that your operation is hybrid Cloud enabled. When growth or changes to the business model mean you need more space, you can shift some of the load to a public Cloud. Minimising the external space keeps costs down and maximises the ROI of your existing hardware.
