Private is not an issue, Dropbox, WhatsApp or Apple’s iCloud are filled with data just so – here we do not want to know what happens with it. But also the companies think: Amazon plays here the pioneer with its Amazon Web Services (AWS) – mercilessly cheap and fast and works with the Amazon account. Many of our customers would be surprised at what your test and development departments already do with AWS. If necessary, even travel costs are settled via the “shadow IT”.
Why do they do that?
It is a question of time. New capacities often have to be created in the short term. However, the internal IT departments sometimes need several weeks to provide their users (virtual machines). One solution would be the private cloud. The data center, including services such as automation of processes, internal application catalogs, automatic approval and deployment processes, etc., is transformed into a private cloud.
