Pause for thought – 4 great questions on Cloud Computing


Ashwin Raghavan contacted me via this blog about the dissertation he is working on for his MBA and whether I would be able to answer some questions for him. I thought his questions were bang on. I’ll share my answers later … but for now, ponder on these 🙂

  1. In your view, do you agree with the term ‘Cloud Computing’ being just a rebranding, then how is it different from Legacy systems?
  2. Please highlight a list (top 3 or 4) of benefits and drawbacks of ‘Cloud Computing’ services by priority? Please provide your justification, if any?
  3. What is your general view on UK SMEs technology competitiveness (are they exploiting it well to gain advantage in the business)? What is your stance on ‘Cloud Computing’ rendering competitiveness to SMEs*?
  4. In your view, what do you see to be the list (top 3 or 4) drivers and barriers for UK SMEs? Please add your brief comments on how to overcome the identified barriers?

*In UK, Small and Medium size enterprises (SMEs) are those with a workforce ranging from 0-250 people.
