Traditionally, organizations use their own data centers to communicate with their users/customers through information technology. Business team of the organization achieves this by funding the development of a range of web applications. Typically, web applications are developed using the components present in the data center and using the human IT infrastructure. In other words, organization needs to incur the expenses on data center components and human IT infrastructure for the development of new web application. Therefore, the operating cost of the data center can change with the change in the number of web applications hosted on the organization's data center.
