  • Cloud computing

    Is cloud computing transforming the industry?

    The IT services now known as cloud computing have been around for decades, but they never grew beyond a small fraction of total industry revenue. Now, however, their time has come: over the past few years, a dizzying array of hardware and software available as services over the internet has emerged.

    Consumers and businesses have embraced a multitude of cloud services, from mature sales force management services to email and photo editing to the latest smartphone applications and the entire social networking phenomenon. Further, researchers project an imminent inflection point in the adoption of cloud services by organizations both large and small.

    As cloud adoption becomes widespread, its characteristic of enhancing business agility is likely to lead to an increasing pace of change for all industries worldwide. Adding fuel to the interest in cloud computing is that cloud services advance “green” agendas: they allow fuller utilization of shared infrastructure capacity, thus consuming less power and lowering the carbon footprints of their users versus alternative IT approaches.

    • Physical boundaries are disappearing as more business data is transmitted over the internet
    • The pace of change continues to accelerate
    • Companies are moving from the more traditional outsourcing contracts to cloud service providers
