Cloud computing will move to the forefront of the market not just as a buzz word, but will provide significant benefits to companies that embrace it.
Scottsdale, AZ (Vocus/PRWEB) February 24, 2011
What are world-class CIOs doing today to operate more efficiently and cost-effectively than their peers? The answer is cloud computing. Experienced CIO, Fred Mapp, introduced a new cloud computing white paper today, entitled “Cloudy with a Chance of Confusion.” The white paper, presented by OneNeck IT Services, describes the benefits of cloud computing and explains the different shapes and forms of cloud computing.
CIOs, IT managers and business executives are dealing with the challenge of keeping up with technology changes to meet the increasing demand from business units for IT functionality and from CFOs for decreasing IT budgets. These challenges are currently being addressed by companies considering cloud computing to achieve flexibility and scalability in managing IT applications and infrastructure. Yet, many businesses are still reluctant to make the leap into cloud computing.
Fred Mapp shared, “Corporate management and especially CIOs are still hesitant and slow to migrate to cloud computing. Legitimate concerns exist with any new technology trend or platform. CIOs are not completely sold on the value of cloud computing and how it fits into the company’s IT plans.”
Mapp continued, “Transformational IT change can be difficult, but the truth is, today's mobile works and interconnected IT environments demand new approaches to delivering business applications. Cloud computing will move to the forefront of the market not just as a buzz word, but will provide significant benefits to companies that embrace it.”
The complimentary cloud computing white paper is available from OneNeck IT Services, and includes:
- surveys of leading companies on cloud computing issues,
- information about the definition of and types cloud computing,
- benefits of migrating to the cloud,
- inhibitors, barriers, concerns and myths,
- considerations for the implications and tradeoffs associated with moving to the cloud.
