We don’t have resources to invest in that new server farm, so let’s move it to the Cloud. Have you ever heard that from your C-Suite?
New applications or significant upgrades to existing applications often require additional computing power. Since these expansions can strain existing in-house data centers in terms of power, floor space, and cooling, CIOs may want to shift new operations to outside cloud providers. For organizations who do not have previous experience with the cloud, this can be a high-risk endeavor.
