Myth Four: A Cloud Is a Cloud

The fourth myth Jaquith expects to see debunked in 2013 once again relates to the cloud. The myth is that all cloud services are the same.

"This may have been the case once upon a time," he said, "but today, nearly all cloud providers offer customized solutions to meet the specific needs of your business including high service level agreements, integration with existing business applications, private cloud options and specific, tailored contractual terms."

Myth Five: The Case for Cloud Conversion

The fifth and final myth Jaquith expects to see debunked in 2013 is this: IT needs to make the case for cloud conversion. But as he sees it, relying on internal resources to make the case for cloud adoption is a losing proposition.

"It is cloud vendors -- not IT departments -- who are responsible for making the path to the cloud simple, safe and secure. 2013 is the year to start demanding more from your potential cloud providers, especially when it comes to convincing your executive team and board that it's time to make the move," Jaquith said.

"Additionally, it's your right to demand functionality, transparency, clarity and assurance around your provider's data protection policies. In fact, this should be built into your contract -- as well as the right to audit the provider's practices."
