You can't hide your head in the sand. You can't plunge headfirst into it and ignore the obvious risks.
In between these two extremes is the notion of governance: a policy-making function that attempts to assess opportunities and risks in a dynamically changing environment. Several years ago when I was doing the corporate social media strategy thing, I found that a good governance model can accelerate change.
I think it can do the same thing with enterprise use of clouds as well.And, today, I'd like to share with you a "cloud governance model" that EMC's IT team is using to navigate the choppy waters forward.
