Cloud Transparency: The Key to Digital Trust Payoffs
The immutable truth of digital trust applies in the cloud as well as in every other information technology delivery circumstance. This is the foundation conclusion of the Digital Trust in the Cloud research report.
More importantly, however, the practical parallel also highlighted in that report is the ability of cloud transparency to generate digital trust, and thereby lead to the enterprise payoffs that are offered by cloud service delivery and consumption models. By exploring the realities of cloud processing using standard definitions and case applications, and then combining those results with the entire research body of digital trust, the primary source of digital trust in the cloud becomes obvious, i.e., transparency in the cloud.
