Let's talk about cloud computing and cloud migration. ☁️☁️☁️

On 6/22/20, LogicMonitor released survey data that 87% of global IT decision-makers agree that the COVID-19 pandemic will cause organizations to accelerate their migration to the cloud. More than a year later, I would be interested to re-open the conversation, especially with SpiceHeads. 

Cloud workloads have increased (in some industries more than others) and there are certainly advantages of cloud/hybrid environments, but I want to hear from you! What are your thoughts? Are you in an industry that will never see cloud computing as a significant player? Are you already in a pure cloud environment? What are your cloud migration success stories and/or horror stories?

I don't like to be a doomsayer, but sometimes I think we are just one really big hack away from people getting really spooked by cloud computing and running the other way. I also think the spectre of losing control of your data or feeling trapped by ever increasing costs might limit some from going all in on cloud.

We were already primarily heading that way anyway, 2020 didn't change that.
