Almost 6 months into leading the teams at Comunet, I’ve had quite a few people ask me what is the biggest surprise or challenge that I’ve come across. 

Probably not-surprisingly, it’s been dealing with the common misconception that “the cloud” is less secure than on-premise solutions – which is exacerbated by the ambiguity that exists in many organisations around cloud computing in general. 

Cloud computing has now been around long enough to no longer be a fad, and the statistics around cloud use and security incidents leave little room for debate on the fact that, configured correctly, Cloud Services (such as those provided by Microsoft or AWS) are more secure than on-premise solutions.

This week I am presenting to a room full of business leaders on The Cloud - Understanding, Opportunities and Challenges. Even though I have a non-technical background, I can still get caught up in the technology speak, making it difficult to achieve understanding on some of the key messages regarding cloud computing. I have been thinking about different analogies I could come up with to try and better explain what cloud...
