“Since the cloud computing model became a mainstream phenomenon about 15 years ago, users have submitted to a barrage of confusing claims, counterclaims, and FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt),” says Claude Baudoin, owner, and principal at cébé IT and Knowledge Management, and co-chair of the OMG Cloud Working Group. “This paper analyzes and debunks cloud myths.”

Myths can lead to various inappropriate decisions in cloud computing. The Cloud Myths and Realities paper will help customers discern the reality behind the cloud myths, which is essential when forming a cloud strategy.
