Since cloud computing has made big leaps in the past few years by emerging as a conventional business tool, several strategies have consequently surfaced. These myths aren't necessarily as risky as they were initially presented to be, but they certainly affect our methods of approaching solutions in the cloud computing space. The following is a list of some of notes that you will find useful: 1.

Facing SaaS App Reality | @CloudExpo #IoT #BigData #DevOps
