Roundtable: Every cloud has a silver lining

Edward Lim | April 2, 2013
Concerns about security, cost and connectivity when adopting cloud solutions dominated discussions at an Executive Roundtable held in Singapore recently.

Chartis Singapore Insurance has embarked on a shared service infrastructure at its front end. "We are at different stages for different settings. The Hurricane Sandy incident has raised questions and caused us to think further," said Marcus Tu, Head, Technical Services Group, Chartis Singapore Insurance.

"For core systems, security and response time are critical. For non-critical systems, cloud is going to take off," said Khoo.

Service providers can guide organisations along in cloud computing.

"We have taken quite a number of customers in Australia through a journey as they started to adopt cloud. We have led them from initial assessment and application identification to migration planning and execution. Telstra has a suite of services to help our clients understand where they are today and what they want to do. We are selling a flexible IT infrastructure and the support services to help clients move in and out," said Duggan.
