IDC PlanScape: Building Compliant Cloud Environments

This IDC study provides details about building compliant cloud environments."Compliance has come to the cloud," says Mike Chapple, adjunct analyst with IDC's IT Executive Programs (IEP). "Enterprises planning a large-scale cloud migration should absolutely consider regulated workloads as part of the pool of candidate services to operate in the cloud. Those who already completed cloud migration projects but held back regulated workloads should reexamine that decision and consider the potential technical and compliance benefits of migrating those workloads as well."
