13 reasons that MIGHT prevent companies from successfully leveraging public cloud services

Cloud computing seems to be the holy grail, at least that is the impression I get when I scroll down my Linked-in and Twitter timelines. Don’t get me wrong, like everybody else I’m also excited about everything that is going on around ‘the cloud’ and the potential it brings to the table, never mind the type of public cloud service used. I mean, no upfront investments, flexibility, burst capacity (up and downscaling) at our fingertips, ease of management and maintenance and so on, what’s not to like? But, ‘the cloud’ is also just getting started, it isn’t ‘mature’ and/or seen as proven technology by many – there are still a bunch of reasons why companies might wait to leverage (public) cloud computing in general, go hybrid or perhaps won’t join the cloud movement at all, at least not for the first couple of years. I just wanted to put this out there and see what you guys think.

Disclaimer: the purpose of this article is not to dish ‘the cloud’, I’m not saying ‘the cloud’ is bad or that you shouldn’t make use of ‘the cloud’. ‘The cloud’ holds great potential and it will continue to evolve in rapid pace, I’m sure. I’ve come across numerous use-cases myself (in fact, I’m studying the Azure architecture as we speak, exam included) and I love the innovation going on between Citrix and Microsoft as well – now we’re getting somewhere. But… ‘the cloud’ is not for everybody, is has downsides as well, eventually not every company is going to move their datacenters into ‘the cloud’ and even in the case of hybrid deployments this will take time.

The general assumption
