IT chiefs met this week at the Groucho Club in Soho to discuss agile business practices in cloud computing as part of a V3 roundtable, hosted in conjunction with Sungard Availability Services.
The event centred on topics uncovered in a V3 reader survey, which revealed business attitudes towards change in the digital era, how flexible and agile organisations are, and how flexible they should be.
During the event, the CIOs discussed the cost of change, the role of security and compliance in change management, the rise of shadow IT and the obstructions to becoming a flexible, agile organisation.
The attendees agreed that cloud computing technology's security, reliability and scalability have hampered widespread adoption for years, and underlying these security and technical issues is a more fundamental worry about the survival chances of those vendors creating and selling cloud services.
The experts' cloud concerns are one of many insights to come out of the V3 agile business roundtable. Check out our event's live blog for a more thorough overview of the debate.
