"Every cloud can have a silver lining"

According to the Digital Barometer 2014 survey, Finland boasts the best overall prerequisites for taking advantage of digitalisation.

Nevertheless, the same survey suggests that the actual ability of Finnish companies to take advantage of digitalisation ranks only 17th globally. Finland is surpassed in this respect by countries such as Russia, Ireland, Italy, Israel, and India.

"Cloud service is insecure"

 

This phrase describes well the prevailing attitude towards cloud services/solutions only a few years ago.

 

The first impression in organisations’ of the cloud data security was overall quite negative. At the time many then unresolved purchasing-related issues in cloud service backed the opinion. These were issues such as the supplier’s responsibility, technical support, maintenance, and various legislation-related problems and questions.

 
Today, the availability and quality of cloud solutions have evolved tremendously. Moreover, the data transfer (such as mobile networks and WLAN networks) and mobile devices used have become faster and thus lowered the introduction threshold of many relevant solutions.

Cloud computing refers to information technology development and utilisation in the Internet (i.e. ‘the cloud’). Cloud computing describes a model for production, use, and delivery of IT services associated with dynamically scalable and virtual resources offered on service basis. In plain language, this means that the solution offered grows in hand with the customer’s business operations.

 
The term ‘cloud’ is a metaphor referring to the abstract Internet cloud (used often in diagrams).
