This IDC study discusses aspects of governance for your cloud new world. For companies to effectively take advantage of this "cloud new world," there's an intensified need for a centralized governance structure."Developing and implementing a cloud governance framework is critical. There are some fundamental questions that need to be addressed. The IT organization will have to plan ahead as its role is changing.
