Cloud washing is back in the news

The cloud market continues to grow at a phenomenal pace. There is now denying this. However it appears that the world of cloud washing may be making somewhat of a re-appearance, if ever it disappeared in the first place.

On day one of the Professional Cloud Service Manager course we learn about what cloud computing is and how to identify cloud and non-cloud services. We learn how to apply a quick acid-test to cloud based services which, when understood, is quite simple to do.

On day two of the course, we discuss the concept of cloud washing again when we look at strategising for cloud computing and cloud based services. In particular we look at how one government body defined cloud washing.

For a brief but interesting read on cloud washing have a look at this article.
