In strategy sessions we used to preach “Do your core competency and outsource the rest”. Those words echo mightily in stories like this one from CIO. One would think that a huge media giant like Conde Nast would find it much more economical to run its own data center.
Somehow, the tables have turned. It IS now more economical to move to the Cloud, especially given the distributed nature of cloud computing and its ability to optimize access and improve security, fault tolerance, and business continuity in the event of a failure.
