Cyber Security Fears: Joe Weinman

2015 Trend Watch: Cyber Security Fears and the Supply Chain Cloud

While the advantages of cloud-computing are becoming well known and ever more compelling, the move to the cloud may be stifled somewhat in 2015 due to concerns over cyber security. While cloud computing isn’t inherently more dangerous than on-site servers, the cloud does introduce unknowns, and with the severe stings received by Sony, Target, and JP Morgan last year, companies are skittish about unknowns.

Even so, ERP vendors are pushing the cloud. The shift will become irresistible for many manufacturers in 2015 in spite of cyber security concerns. The study, Manufacturing Trends to Watch, produced by Frost and Sullivan's Gil Manufacturing Leadership group, sees continued tension in 2015 between the need to move to the cloud and the fear of cyber attacks. This is the final article in a three-part series that examines developments in manufacturing that will play out in 2015.
