Clouding the Issue? Facts and Myths About Cloud Computing
It’s just a passing fad
You’re probably right, but if you’ve been in the technology industry as long as I have, you notice that what goes around comes around — but it’s generally better. Dumb terminals?

So is it time to move to cloud?
The issue is complicated when you’ve already invested in “on premise” systems, but I have to say, if I was starting a new charity, I would definitely be looking at cloud solutions so I could focus on the cause, not the computers.
