IT Best Practices: IT cloud computing is a significant trend with the potential to increase IT business agility and lower costs. Today, however, security risks, immature technology, and other concerns prevent widespread enterprise adoption of external clouds. Intel IT is developing an IT strategy based on growing the cloud from the inside out. We take advantage of software as a service (SaaS) and niche infrastructure as a service (IaaS) implementations whenever possible, and we are building an internal cloud-computing environment. Our internal environment delivers many of the benefits of clouds and positions us to use external clouds in the future, as supplier offerings mature and barriers to enterprise adoption are overcome.
