Cloud Computing presents new opportunities, but also new challenges and organizational risks. Management and deployment of this new technology presents potential privacy and regulatory challenges, shifts control away from the organization, creates financial and operational benefits, introduces new opportunities for financial treatment, and creates new dependencies on third-party business partners.
