Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Reg reader study According to feedback so far from Reg readers, the jury is still out on the question of security when it comes to hosted apps, or 'Software as a Service' (SaaS) in cloud parlance.

Some reckon the risks are simply too high, others say you just need to think it through and make decisions sensibly.

While it's a complex topic, vendors and service providers seem hell bent on making the whole cloud thing happen. Some are now even using the 'C' word in prime-time TV advertising. SaaS is obviously part of this so it's inevitable that more business stakeholders and users will take an interest in it over time if they are not doing so already.

So what are the things to consider in terms of risks? And if you are selecting services, what criteria can be used to make sure risks are properly assessed and managed?

These are just a couple of questions covered in our latest Reg reader survey.

We know a lot of you have opinions in this area, so make sure you have your say.
