Executive Summary

Today, users demand secure remote access to critical applications whenever they want them, from whatever device they use, wherever they happen to be. Consequently, the IT industry has been building a pathway to cloud computing.

As web-centric computing took root within IT departments, a new reality dawned: Operations and applications need not be confined to distinct physical resources. In turn, a logical view of IT - enabled by the virtualization of computing, storage, client and network resources from underlying physical hardware - became not just possible but preferable to reduce costs and optimize performance. This development dovetailed with increasing mobility.

The IT industry therefore has been moving toward an automated, dynamic, on-demand IT environment for some time. In other words, it has been building the pathway to cloud computing.
