  • Marc Benioff, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of, says his mission is to “destroy the software industry.”Founded in 1999, has more than 100,000 customers and 8,500 employees worldwide. After going public in 2004, it posted total revenues of US$2.3 billion in the year ended January 31, 2012, up 37% from 2011.In May 2008, became the first publicly traded cloud computing vendor to receive ISO 27001 Security Certification, the internationally recognised standard for certifying that a provider's information security management system protects its information and that of its customers.In the process, he has reinvented it and has created a fast-growing company that leverages new technology and business models and provides businesses an alternative to the traditional model of buying and installing software on their own equipment.Instead of selling physical packages of software, uses what is known as the software-as-a-service (SaaS) or cloud computing model.

I justfoundtop ten benefitsofcloudcomputing:Achieve economies of scale – increase volume output or productivity with fewer people. Your cost per unit, project or product plummets.Reduce spending on technology infrastructure. Maintain easy access to your information with minimal upfront spending. Pay as you go (weekly, quarterly or yearly), based on demand.Globalize your workforce on the cheap. People worldwide can access the cloud, provided they have an Internet connection.Streamline processes. Get more work done in less time with less people.Reduce capital costs. There’s no need to spend big money on hardware, software or licensing fees.Improve accessibility. You have access anytime, anywhere, making your life so much easier!Monitor projects more effectively. Stay within budget and ahead of completion cycle times.Less personnel training is needed. It takes fewer people to do more work on a cloud, with a minimal learning curve on hardware and software issues.Minimize licensing new software. Stretch and grow without the need to buy expensive software licenses or programs.Improve flexibility. You can change direction without serious “people” or “financial” issues at stake.Cloudcomputingistheuseofcomputingresourses (hardware, software)that aredeliveredas a serviceover a network(tipicallyintheinternet).

Andalreadythere are somekindofcategories, differentcloudservicemodelssuchas - saas, paas, iaasandsoone. he biggest growth area is Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).  Thus suggests that IT Managers are leading the growth, because IaaS is generally maintained and managed by in-house IT personnel.Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is due to be the next big grower, as businesses start realising that they can have enterprise-level IT without the high upfront cost, or necessarily the need for in-house IT personnel.

  • The rapid acceptance of cloud CRM applications has compelled other software companies to follow the model. Research firm IDC said that by the end of 2009, 76 percent of all organizations in the US used at least one SaaS-delivered application.80% ofthemsaidproductivityincreasedaftermoving to Cloud.

Comparing cloud users and non-cloud users, they found that mid-sized companies ($50 million to $1 billion of yearly revenue) were the largest group to adopt the cloud for data storage, accounting for 48 percent of the cloud users surveyed. Small companies (under $50 million of yearly revenue) were next at 38 percent and large companies (above $1 billion of yearly revenue) came in last at only 26 percent.TherewereanotherresearchmadeinUS,with 500 hundreDpeople, and 95% ofthemsaidthattheyhaveusedCloudcomputingunknowingly.
