Improving Data Governance (105 points)
Cloud Computing is a changing the landscape of IT. For this assignment, first explain the concept Cloud Computing. Then, identify two KSA organizations that have benefited from implementing a Cloud Computing technology. These organizations may be ones you have personal experience with or that you have identified and studied through research. Briefly describe both organizations and then answer the following questions for each:
- What technology did they implement?
- Why did they choose that technology?
- What business factors were evaluated prior to implementation?
- What information deficiencies existed prior to implementation?
- What benefits were gained after implementing the technology?
- Do the benefits associated with the technology outweigh the costs?
Your well-written report should be 4-5 pages in length, not including the cover and reference pages. Use APA style guidelines, citing at least two references in support of your work, in addition to your text and assigned readings. Review the grading rubric to see how you will be graded for this assignment.
