Even as many still regard it as a 'new technology', experts and senior industry leaders are of the view that Cloud is increasingly becoming a game-changer for Indian information technology (IT) services companies.
Companies are less concerned about measuring return on investment (ROI) for cloud computing engagements. Is that a good thing? A new survey of 350 senior IT executives finds 16 percent see measuring ROI as a hurdle to their cloud computing implementations, down from 34 percent in a similar survey from a [...]

What I mean is that compared to an in-house system where there is virtually no connection to the outside internet, the whole world will now be potentially be able to just walk up to your door, so to speak, in public cloud systems.
