  • We are here to discuss how cloud computing is impacting the business world and how you can leverage its impact. In other words—we’ll talk about the big trend of cloud computing and how it’s going to impact your organization, and how you can leverage what you have now to start to get some of the benefits from the cloud.
  • Definition•Cloud computing is …. .•Cloud computing describes a new supplement, consumption and delivery model for IT services based on Internet, and it typically involves the provision of dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources as a service over the Internet
  •  Save MoneyEliminate purchasing and maintaining a serverReduce software license fees and maintenanceSave TimeVery little software is installed or maintained at your siteSoftware is easily accessible from any workstation with internet access
  • Public cloud is a term used to describe the common cloud computing model whereby a service provider makes resources like software or data storage available over the internet. While the public cloud is big business and attracts the world’s largest providers, like Amazon Web Services and IBM, access to the public cloud itself is often inexpensive or free to establish and users are often, but not always, smaller scale enterprises or individuals. The public cloud is sometimes regarded as less secure than private clouds
  • Offering resources (infrastructure and applications) as servicesFlexibility and scale that meet client demandsResource sharing among a large number of usersMeasurement and payment according to use of the serviceUse of Internet protocols and technologies to access cloud resources
  • Windows Azure is Microsoft’s platform for delivering the Microsoft stack in the cloud. It’s an open and flexible cloud platform that enables you to quickly build, deploy and manage applications, such as Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013, across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters.

No additional training is required, you get the same great experience either at home, on the road or at the office.SSL – you’ve probably seen this on any type of eCommerce site. All communications from client to server are encrypted to prevent interception by others. One of the barriers to adoption of a web application is security, by using SSL we help remove some of those concerns on security for you.
