If you thought that large organizations are not looking at public cloud solutions, i guess you were wrong. The BBC is reporting today that the Spanish bank BBVA is moving all their 110.000 staff to use google services. The bank does claim to keep all customer data on-premise, but services like email, calendar, docs, chat, video conferencing and other collaboration tools will run on Google’s systems.

The biggestĀ challengeĀ for the bank, besides the worry about extra network traffic, is of course cultural issues. As technology today is ready for this new way of IT.. the people might just not be :-)
