In today’s business environment the gray areas of cloud computing are coming more into focus.
The cloud is nothing new or mysterious. WE have been using the cloud since the first days of the Internet. Email, web search and online forums are cloud services with which we are all familiar.
Cloud computing is simply a delivery mechanism for providing virtual services that can be accessed from almost anywhere.
Cloud computing is not on the horizon, it is here today, enabling your business to achieve objectives that in the past were limited by technology.
Historically, businesses had to buy and own costly hardware to handle their computing needs. Adding more resources and capabilities required additional purchases.
However, this investment is no longer necessary. The cloud provides the ability to increase computing power without incurring major expenditures.
Predicting and budgeting the costs of IT has always been hard. How can the cloud help business owners gain control?Everything you need: Equipment, software, connectivity, maintenance and data protection can be combined into a single monthly payment. Budgeting IT costs suddenly becomes realistic and easy to manage.
Imagine if employees could access company data while away from the office. What if they had the flexibility to utilize core business services on their laptop, smart phone or tablet? Ease of access through different devices makes cloud computing uniquely flexible.
No longer are we chained to the desk, cubical or CPU ivory tower. The cloud now allows you the freedom to choose where you work.
The technology landscape is rapidly evolving. Major vendors such as Cisco, HP, Microsoft, IBM and Intel see the marketplace already implementing cloud solutions.
Even Wall Street is making the transition to the cloud. The industry is forecasting a 75% market penetration by cloud solutions in the next three years.
Industry analyst Gartner Inc. says cloud computing will be as influential as e-business and “has the potential to change the status quo in the IT market”.
