    The point about security being - I'd trust Oracle (for example) to secure their data centers hosting SaaS applications far more than I would some tinpot in-house IT department. In fact just about any in-house IT department.

    So presumably you'd not be a fan of private cloud?

    Yeah they will probably do a decent job at securing your data from 3rd parties, but who secures your data from Oracle?

    I know that Capital One (which is mainly a credit card company here, but is the eighth biggest consumer bank in the USA) is moving absolutely everything on to AWS; and one of their primary motivations is that Amazon is able to provide a level of security, with specific reference to the regulatory compliance aspects to which they are subject, that they determined was vastly superior to that they can provide for themselves, even though they already have an enormous amount of in-house expertise.

    CapOne spent a couple of years looking into this, including lots of testing and exploratory projects, before making this decision.

    Sources: I was contracting there when they threw the switch and started the ongoing process of moving their worldwide operations to AWS (and it led to my contract being terminated a couple of months early, much to my relief as I was fed up with the commute to Nottingham); and Werner Vogels, CTO and VP of Amazon, stated in his keynote address at the AWS Summit London last year (which I attended) that it was primarily the security and compliance benefits that made them commit to AWS.

    My client co is moving almost everything to the cloud. Mostly AWS, all office stuff to 365 in Azure. Everything not going to these are being handed over to Wipro to manage. InfoSys manage access to the AWS infrastructure.

    I'm being replaced by a robot, so I'm trying to compete on a level playing field.

    Patiently waiting for the much publicised and feared Brexit Doom.....
