Ben Granger-Holcombe, Director for Cloud Adapt said: “I recall watching my family get familiar with internet-based banking, I remember my father initially being reluctant to adapt but soon realising the many benefits once he was satisfied these services were safe and secure.”
Mr Granger-Holcombe goes on to state “The conversations I have on a daily basis around Cloud computing draw parallels to those I initially had around Internet banking. Who else can access my account? Is it secure? It now fascinates me – people have crossed the chasm in regard to trusting their money management being in the Cloud, now I am seeing similar questions around trust of data in the Cloud.”
There are no doubts that the online economy in Australia is booming, Commonwealth Bank of Australia’s Netbank service – http://www.commbank.com.au/personal/netbank/ states that 5 million customers now use their internet banking service. Referencing an SMH article http://www.smh.com.au/business/online-economy-booming-as-users-spread-net-wide-20111117-1nl1s.html it would appear that security fears are diminishing within many SME businesses.
Andy Rootes, Sales Manager for Cloud Adapt states “It is somewhat confusing that people are adopting money management solutions, across internet banking and also financial SaaS providers, such as Xero, whilst there is reluctance around having data management in the Cloud”.
Mr Rootes goes on to state, “The organisations that have built out SaaS-based solutions for managing data have invested significantly into the formation of their environments, it is near on impossible for organisations in Australia to match the investment these companies have made in security. I believe that before long executives in Australia will come to realise that managing their data in the Cloud is just as safe as management of their money via internet-based banking solutions.”
