According to your readings, cloud computing represents one of the most significant paradigms shifts in information technology (IT) history, due to an extension of sharing an application-hosting provider that has been around for many years, and was common in highly regulated vertical industries like banks and health care institutions. The authors knowledge from their research continue to assert that, the impetus behind cloud computing lies on the idea that it provides economies of scale by spreading costs across many client organizations and pooling computing resources while matching client computing needs to consumption in a flexible, real-time version. Identify the issues and risks that pose concern to organizations storing data in the cloud – briefly support your discussion. At least one scholarly source should be used in the initial discussion thread. Be sure to use information from your readings and other sources from the UC Library.

We learn from our readings that the use of mobile devices in our society today has indeed become ubiquitous. In addition, CTIA asserted that over 326 million mobile devices were in use within The United States as of December 2012 an estimated growth of more than 100 percent penetration rate with users carrying more than one device with notable continues growth. From this research, its evident that mobile computing has vastly accelerated in popularity over the last decade due to several factors noted by the authors in our chapter reading. In consideration with this revelation, identify and name these factors, and provide a brief discussion about them. At least one scholarly source should be used in the initial discussion thread.
