Moving Applications to the Cloud - Determining What Applications Make Sense for Your Business
Cloud Computing is one of the hottest topics of discussion in the technology sector today. It is expected to have a tremendous and "Game-changing" impact on how IT is delivered in the future. Almost everyone wants to realize the stated promises and benefits of the cloud. Just jumping into the cloud with no clear understanding on how to get the most value may lead to a rough landing. One needs to have a logical approach to understanding the IT demands and then have a validated roadmap to decrease the risk and provide the most value. One will also require flexibility in the design as virtual workloads will need to be easily and securely moved between in-house systems and external cloud-based systems.
