Cloud Computing Platform: A Perspective Overview
Traditional business applications have always been very complicated and expensive. The amount and variety of hardware and software required to run them are daunting. The users need a whole team of experts to install, configure, test, run, secure, and update them. When the people multiply this effort across dozens or hundreds of apps, it's easy to see why the biggest companies with the best IT departments aren't getting the apps they need. With cloud computing, they eliminate those headaches because they're not managing hardware and software-that's the responsibility of an experienced vendor like salesforce.com.
