Summary

CIOs frequently ask us which applications they should consider moving to the cloud or replace with cloud services. Forrester provides you with a methodology to answer this question and help you determine the best fit for all types of outsourcing. This is key because many applications are not a good fit for cloud computing environments but are legitimate candidates for outsourcing in other ways. This report provides CIOs working on cloud computing a quick framework for making these build/buy decisions and introduces Forrester's strategic rightsourcing tool. This report is designed to help you rightsource your applications for the cloud. It is an update to "I&O Execs Must Determine Which Applications Should Move To The Cloud" originally published on May 25, 2011.
