This article on IT Pro looks at the benefits as well as the challenges of cloud computing.  Cloud has the potential to both cut costs and to simplify IT, but there are also implementation challenges that must be considered.

The article refers to a research paper from PA Consulting Group’s IT team. The authors of the report suggest that the greatest challenge is not security but interoperability.
