The Swiss IT newspaper Netzwoche was so kind to publish a comment in German from me. In the article I outline my personal view that Public Cloud solutions are not necessarily a good idea for larger companies. Software companies are trying to use this as an “electronic dongle” that creates a constant revenue stream and at the same time forces the customers to constantly migrate to their newest version. Customers thus give away control over their own innovation cycles and – more importantly – over access and retention of their data. The article can be found on the website of Netzwoche.
