9 Most Overhyped or Under-Appreciated Cloud Technologies

Mitch Wagner

Cloud technology gets burned by two kinds of hype: too much, and not enough.

On the one hand, you have exaggerated claims made for some cloud technologies. If you believe the evangelists, they'll drive your costs down to zero, revenues up to infinity, whiten your teeth, reverse baldness, and make the dog stop smelling so bad.

On the other hand, some technologies don't get enough love. These are workhorses that can deliver real cost and revenue benefits, but they're not getting talked about a lot.

For our latest special report, Enterprise Cloud News surveyed the field, talked with enterprise practitioners and industry experts, and identified nine technologies that are either overhyped or under-appreciated. The technologies include hybrid cloud, security threats, containers, and more. But which falls in which category? Read the report to find out:

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
