As just one or two CAD vendors roar full throttle into cloud services in 2012, Infoworld writer David Linthicum reminds us that there are three issues that he sees being/becoming the problem:
Blunder No. 1: Security "specifically, the need for identity-based security down to the fine-grained service layers. Most cloud computing providers aren't yet smart about this."
Blunder No. 2: Cost of Migration "is that adopters who underestimate the costs will end up with project overruns that in turn cascade into failures as the cloud migration projects get larger and larger."
Blunder No. 3: Performance as "the providers need to increase their numbers of subscribers, thus providing more for less, as competition gets heated."
