You can no longer afford to indulge cloud blockers

Cognitive dissonance occurs when beliefs or assumptions are contradicted by new information. People address that tension with one of several defensive maneuvers: Often, they reject or avoid the new information, or they resort to other defensive means of preserving order in their conceptions of reality.

What does this have to do with cloud computing? A lot, these days.

For many IT professionals a decade ago, cloud computing was not secure, overpriced, unreliable, and other otherwise evil. In the early days, they loudly agitated against the cloud notion. Today, those people largely keep their opinions to themselves, but more of them are out there than you know.

Many enterprises are today highly successful with cloud computing, and the evidence clearly shows that the cloud is more secure than on-premises systems, costs less to operate, and provides key strategic capabilities such as agility and reduced time to market.
