Cloud computing is becoming popular. More and more project managers will be interacting with cloud computing, either developing clouds, using clouds, or selecting among cloud and non-cloud alternatives to accomplish their projects. This talk provides a brief and very basic introduction to cloud computing, what project managers need to know about cloud computing, and what they need to ask about cloud computing from service providers. Selected questions specific to PMs associated with government projects and the security risks of cloud computing will be addressed. This non-technical presentation will help PMI members understand cloud basics and how to ask better questions when a cloud becomes part of your project.
