Gartner: Hype could hurt cloud adoption

Brandon Butler | Aug. 15, 2012
The hype around cloud computing and misuse of the term by some providers creates confusion in the market and if that continues, research firm Gartner says, it could detract from the technology's many benefits.

Howie isn't worried about this market confusion leading to hype fatigue though. Instead, he says the biggest problem with cloud computing is many adopters think that it will automatically save them money. It can, he says, but it has to be implemented correctly and for the right reasons -- it's not simply a silver bullet. That misconception about the monetary benefits of the cloud is not the fault of vendors though, he says, and has more to do with the planning and implementation of cloud computing within an organization.
