There really are not any downsides to employing a cloud storage broker; much like the sommelier has found his niche, so have cloud storage brokers who are employed as consultants external to the organization. They deliver specialized cloud assessment services in a rapidly-evolving
field. State and local governments can save money by engaging with cloud consultants on an as-needed basis.
The focus is on government cloud security and it needs to remain there. Over one-third of corporations rely on cloud computing to meet at least part of their business needs. Cloud broker companies have specialized knowledge of a complex field and are willing to customize their participation to suit a business’s needs. A cloud storage broker will be able to negotiate contracts, facilitate on-site implementation and provide long-term objective feedback.
Of course, the intention is not to replace insightful, trained IT professionals, but to involve them. Seven out of ten high-level IT professionals are heavily involved in the decision to retain a cloud storage broker. In-house IT can provide day-to-day troubleshooting while expanding their technological repertoires alongside a cloud storage broker.
Global market demand for cloud computing infrastructure is growing steadily and is projected to top $75 billion worldwide in the next three years.
