Developers are having a greater impact on how applications are architected, and in many cases, making unilateral choices that are in effect making business decisions for the company. While nearly two-thirds of enterprise IT managers believe they should be the deciding vote in selecting a public cloud service, moving apps to the cloud, or creating a private cloud, business units disagree about 40 percent of the time. CIOs need to manage this.
Making sure you’re prepared is often the lion’s part of success, and the cloud is no exception. The priority is security.
Because your company has probably moved to the cloud, there are some things you are going to worry about, but shouldn’t: the cloud operator stealing your data at rest, bad actors intercepting and reading your data in flight, bad actors “hacking the cloud” and stealing everything. When you eliminate these things, then you get back to the things that really matter.
