  • Cloud Computing – a model for enabling ubiquitous, convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.  Cloud Deployment ModelsCommunity Cloud – Shares infrastructure between several organizations from a specific community with common concerns (e.g., security, compliance, jurisdiction), whether managed internally or by a third-party and hosted internally or externally. Public Cloud – The cloud infrastructure is provisioned by the cloud provider for open use by the general public. It may be owned, managed, and operated by a business, academic, or government organization, or some combination of them.  Private Cloud – Infrastructure provisioned solely for a single organization, whether managed internally or by a third-party and hosted internally or externally.Hybrid Cloud – A composition of two or more clouds (private, community, or public) that remain unique entities but are bound together, offering the benefits of multiple deployment models. It can also be defined as multiple cloud systems that are connected in a way that allows programs and data to be moved easily from one deployment system to another.   Source: NIST

  • This slide is from the Ariba Market Pulse studyIf you isolate to only Enterprise companies, employees over 1000+ Agility is #1CIOs are honing in on the business mandate to create more value in the area of agility and mobility. If you combine internal and external collaboration moves up.
