Cloud computing is one of the hottest topics in enterprise IT today. However, amidst all the hype and misinformation, it is critical that decision makers consider the Cloud as a viable strategic resource for their IT environment.
The combination of rapid technological advancement and the economic realities of our time have given rise to the Cloud Computing Era.
Much like the historical mainframe and client-server eras, the advent of the Cloud is fundamentally changing the way we consume computing resources. Cloud computing allows enterprises to share resources, software and information across a rapidly growing multitude of connected devices, creating new opportunities for business speed and efficiency. By the end of 2014 20% of all server capacity will be in the cloud.
Today’s economy requires the fundamental cost structure of IT to change. Recent studies show that 70% of IT budget is spent on systems maintenance while only 30% is available for productivity-enhancing innovation. The goal is obviously to reverse these figures, where the majority is spent on innovation, and less on ‘keeping the lights on’.
