Life before cloud computing was very complicated and expensive for enterprise companies. The diversity and amount of hardware and software required to run business critical applications meant large teams of IT experts would be employed to install, run, configure, secure and update these systems. Multiply these processes by dozens/hundreds of applications and it’s easy to see why some enterprises are struggling to obtain, process, and then use the wealth of data available to them.
Along came cloud computing; a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage and process data so businesses no longer have to. Here is what cloud computing (delivered through an infrastructure, platform or software as a service model) manages, so your IT staff can focus their efforts elsewhere:
Cloud computing, delivered via one of the above models, is a technology movement growing in popularity as the advantages for large organisations are rapidly realised. Characteristics such as unlimited scalability, pay-per-use billing, self-service provisioning and automatic de-provisioning are attracting large organisations to move their data from local servers over to the cloud.
Accessibility and flexibility attributes of cloud based software means larger organisations can attain the dexterity and agility typically found in smaller businesses while reducing space, time, power and operational costs. Enterprises using cloud technology are operating better and faster than competitors who don’t because their business critical information is hosted, managed, maintained, organised and presented for them allowing more time to be spent expanding business opportunities.
