The SearchCIO team recently had the chance to talk to Forrester Research Vice President James Staten on different factors CIOs need to consider when looking at cloud costs including: Agility, existing legacy systems and current staffs. Do you agree with these factors? What does your company consider when looking at cloud costs?

    I think some of the other aspects that companies usually look for also include 'security' as an important factor. 

    In general, Banking and Finance institutions pay special attention to "security" when it comes to deciding about cloud I believe.

Is your company thinking of going fully into the cloud?

As companies move from partial to complete cloud storage they are finding surprising costs that they did not expect. While the functional cost of actual storage is low, it is the cost of “transactions,” adding, removing or accessing data that is causing some pain. Is your company thinking of going fully into the cloud? Has your company budgeted for transaction fees? Michael Tidmarsh Profile: Michael Tidmarsh

    As far as I know, yes. Some of the groups are completely on cloud now and some others are planning the same. However, we have very less visibility to budget thing.
