Cloud governance is critical to leverage its full potential

Part of the For Cloud Professionals podcast series

Cloud is transforming the way business is done, but many companies are reluctant to fully automate business processes—especially where data security is a concern. To overcome that reluctance, and gain efficiency, it's crucial to implement effective cloud-governance policies.

Want more efficient business processes in the cloud? Govern it effectively.

Cloud is largely fulfilling its potential to transform the way business is done. However, many companies are reluctant to fully leverage the cloud’s ability to automate some business processes to make them more consistent, efficient, and compliant with regulatory agencies. One reason might be a perceived lack of ability to effectively implement governance in a cloud environment. In this episode of the podcast, David Linthicum and guest, Bob Larrivee, discuss how the cloud can help organizations make their processes more consistent, effective—and potentially more compliant—by providing a central point of data capture and process execution, and the role good governance plays in helping companies fully embrace the transformative potential of the cloud.
