ACS' ITO Perspective on Cloud Computing "Is It Ready?"

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Cloud computing is on everyone's mind these days, but asking someone to describe it is almost like asking someone to describe the color orange. There are as many elements, pigments, chemicals, shades, emotions, likes, and dislikes that surround the personal view of orange. While it's hardly anyone's favorite, any kid will tell one that an eight-box of Crayola Crayons just isn't complete without the orange one. As an IT leader, not having a collective understanding, focus, viewpoint, and investment in Cloud will be an obvious omission in the IT portfolio. This paper attempts to share ACS' perspective and bring clients up to speed on the subject, thereby becoming a starting point for the journey to develop potential Cloud offerings.
