Cloud Computing’s payoffs — Part 1

Graph showing the payoff from Cloud Computing

For years, traditional siloed IT has been so rigid that even cast-in-concrete, one-size fits-all cloud services offer important improvements. This IBM study from last year shows where those improvements are: In flexibility, scalability, and efficiency — as well as reducing costs and providing the ability to ensure business continuity in the face of unanticipated disruption.

The same benefits are evidenced in another study, done for a venture capital firm. This study also attempts to peer out ahead a few years.

And what’s visible on the horizon? That Cloud Computing increasingly will be driven by the needs of the business — for innovation, competitive advantage, and mobility.

Cloud Computing’s business benefits are especially worth paying attention to. Which is why my next blog will focus on them.
