Views on Emerging Technologies Like Cloud and Virtualization
Interoperability and portability are key considerations for the adoption of cloud. The ease of integration of cloud services with the existing services within the enterprise will be critical in managing costs. Portability of services allows for flexibility of services between services providers. Attaining the necessary levels of portability and interoperability requires standards for cloud and understanding the choices available as the technologies mature. This is one of the most important discussions for the long-term success of cloud. If ignored, it is an area that can cause a major impact later on as new services are considered, for example, extraordinary integration costs and extended implementation times.
