Firms 'see a lot of opportunity' from cloud computing, says expert

Firms 'see a lot of opportunity' from cloud computing, says expert

Businesses looking to use cloud hosting services for the first time could look at moving non-critical business information into hosted services first after an expert said that first-time users could feel at risk.

Subbu Iyer, senior director of products, application lifecycle management software at Hewlett-Packard, said that smaller businesses do not generally have an information security team.

Furthermore, she said that security is a "huge concern" to smaller firms.

Her comments come after the EU released a report showing its support for cloud computing, identifying the potential cost savings and revenues attached to the technology.

Mr Iyer added that interest is high in cloud services as companies look for ways to save money.

"We see a lot of opportunity both from a cloud computing and a mobile perspective – those two areas are where most customers are asking for solutions and looking at security as a huge complement to moving onto the cloud," he said.
