    The private versus public cloud dilemma: Start with cost

    Building a private cloud offers a host of appealing benefits, including a scalable computing base and speed as a result of standardization. It's a cloud implementation that has worked wonderfully for some organizations, including financial services provider State Street Corp., which is now able to develop and deploy new apps within minutes. But internal private cloud is not for everybody; companies considering this option not only need significant cash outlays, existing data center hardware and a trained IT staff, but also a strong reason why internal private cloud is the way to go over other types of private cloud, like hosted and hybrid -- or even public cloud providers, which have more capacity than companies building an on-premises cloud themselves can ever reach.

    In this issue of CIO Decisions, cloud experts offer advice on how IT leaders can assess whether private versus public cloud will bring the most value to the business. Plus, we detail how travel company Maritz overhauled its approach to IT with automation to better serve internal customers; sit down with Alec Ross, former innovation adviser to Hillary Clinton, to discuss how innovations in robotics, genomics and other technologies will transform how companies do business; get Agile expert Joseph Flahiff's take on the steps a company should take to achieve organizational agility; and more.

    Looking for success in your big data project? It's not so easy, as Senior News Writer Nicole Laskowski found in the first story of our handbook on big data issues.
