Cloud Computing Gets Strategic: Reducing Technology Costs Is Just the Starting Point
Cloud computing can play a strategic role for all companies, not just those in the technology or services industries. The vision is simple: By doing away with typical IT constraints - limited resources, consuming maintenance, and incompatible systems - cloud computing frees the business to pursue growth and innovation. In essence, cloud lets one say yes more often. Imagine that one could green-light as many as a half dozen new Research and Development (R&D) projects instead of betting on just one or two. With clouds on demand approach, it's possible to quickly - and at a fraction of the current cost - equip teams with the resources they need.
