Cloud Computing Services: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Cloud technology is liberating companies from the shackles of conventional IT, allowing mobile workers in a virtualized company to work from anywhere around the world with just an internet connection. Allowing company employees to access files and computer services over the internet, cloud computing is eliminating the need for installing hardware and software on the PC. Employees are no longer chained to the dusty old desktop PC and the need for a traditional brick-and-mortar office is gradually crumbling. Massive improvements in the availability of bandwidth have enabled cloud computing to spread out its wings.

Cloud computing enables energy efficient use of IT resources. Cloud computing allows for resource pooling and sharing. The multi-tenancy concept helps save energy. The concept boosts energy efficiency of per unit of output by enabling shared infrastructure, and driving down aggregate electricity consumption. Datacenters powered by cloud services offer greater cost/energy advantages than traditional enterprise data centers. Cloud computing eliminates the need for on-premise IT infrastructure thereby reducing energy requirements of enterprises. Cloud Computing is therefore gathering critical mass in reducing datacenter footprint and squarely address the issue of surging worldwide IT-related energy consumption. With virtualization and “Virtualization”, and Green IT efforts becoming more or less standard IT strategies in enterprises, cloud services, as key enablers of these IT strategies will continue to benefit big time in coming years.

Cloud Computing has been garnering a huge amount of interest, especially among small & medium enterprises (SMEs) based on its cost advantages and low investment risk. Cloud based services allow expensive technology solutions such as enterprise-grade e-mail communications, CRM, Web videoconferencing and collaboration software to be available as a service over the web browser for nominal monthly subscription, thereby making them easily affordable even to smaller organizations with 4-5 employees. Attracted by the prospect of gaining access to such high-end technologies, whose adoption until recently were largely limited to huge multinationals with strong financial muscle, SMEs have been increasing their investments on cloud computing services. With cloud computing democratizing IT, advanced data analytics capabilities which were traditionally largely limited to large financially strong enterprises are now increasingly available to SMB enterprises.
