At the IBM Cloud Private Day event in Johannesburg, South Africa, last month, Soloman Barghouthi, a product manager for hybrid cloud, told ITWeb that IBM Cloud Private isn’t something leaders buy just because they have money to spend.
“I’m buying it to deliver business value,” he said.
How exactly is it delivering value? Here are a few ways:
1. Managing the politics of moving data.
Database administrators aren’t always willing to put sensitive data on the public cloud.
“Convincing the database administrators to give up control of the data is difficult,” Barghouthi says. “You’ll still have control, but someone else is managing it for you behind the scenes. So there’s a lot of politics with moving data, more so than for any security reason.”
