Cloud computing is rapidly moving from hype to a must-have IT service model. It is transforming the way IT services are provided, consumed and managed.
Cloud computing has multifaceted definitions as it relates to many types of IT users. For the line-of-business executive, cloud computing is a buyer-centric view of technology in which applications are available through rental rather than purchase or development. For the CFO, the cloud offers an approach to consume the latest technologies in a pay-as-you-go model that delivers the cost benefits of variable pricing without a costly investment in hardware and software. And for the CIO, cloud computing provides an infrastructure and application model that can be rapidly provisioned and released to keep up with fluctuating demands.
Combine them, and it’s clear that cloud computing holds enormous potential to help organisations drive growth in their business by achieving dramatic savings in operating costs, reducing complexity and increasing agility.
