Regardless of their location, rather than the traditional model of one application per desktop

The multi-tenant architecture of PaaS offerings often comes with concurrency management, scalability, failover, and security so that you can think big when testing and developing software.For example, some PaaS environments help geographically dispersed teams collaborate and share code or include services for creating data models and policies visually.4)Do they support application interactions and provide resources and policies for service interoperability? Some providers may not allow you to take your application and put it on another platform.
or application testing, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) emulates field conditions using a cloud platform that the department leases only as long as needed
You pay only for what you use, and the service provides all the capacity you need, but you’re responsible for monitoring, managing, and patching your on-demand infrastructure. Sometimes referred to hardware as a service
Security and Privacy- The top most concern that everybody seem to agree as a challenge with cloud is security. The data security and privacy concerns ranks top on almost all of the surveys. Cloud computing introduces another level of risk because essential services are often outsourced to a third party, making it harder to maintain data integrity and privacy, support data and service availability, and demonstrate compliance.Service Quality: Service quality is one of the biggest factors that the enterprises cite as a reason for not moving their business applications to cloud. They feel that the SLAs provided by the cloud providers today are not sufficient to guarantee the requirements for running a production applications on cloud especially related to the availability, performance and scalability. In most cases, enterprises get refunded for the amount of time the service was down but most of the current SLAs down cover business loss. Without proper service quality guarantee enterprises are not going to host their business critical infrastructure in the cloud. Performance / Insufficient responsiveness over network: Delivery of complex services through the network is clearly impossible if the network bandwidth is not adequate. Many of the businesses are waiting for improved bandwidth and lower costs before they consider moving into the cloud. Many cloud applications are still too bandwidth intensive.Integration: Many applications have complex integration needs to connect to other cloud applications as well as other on-premise applications. These include integrating existing cloud applications with existing enterprise applications and data structures. There is a need to connect the cloud application with the rest of the enterprise in a simple, quick and cost effective way.

Before cloud computing…Common business situations
What is Cloud Computing?• Infrastructure, applications, and business processes can be delivered to you as a service, over the Internet rather than a local server
Service models Cloud layers: • Software as a Service (SaaS) • Platform as a Service (PaaS) • Infrastructure as a Service(IaaS)
SaaS• Delivers one application to many users regardless of location• Allows architecture, pricing, partnering, and management characteristics to be managed from one central location
Tips to get you started with SaaS• Compare the up-front cost savings to long-term subscription usage• Look for the ability to customize or configure the application for your environment• Make sure a SaaS solution has all the features you want• Don’t focus solely on costs• Make sure you own your data
IaaS• Rent a data center capacity as needed• Provides compute power, memory, and storage, typically priced per hour based on resource consumption• No need to install new equipment or to wait for the hardware procurement process
Tips to get you started…• Weigh the impact to your IT organization before adopting IaaS• Create a strong internal team to manage your security and compliance requirements with a chosen cloud provider• Make sure you have a thorough understanding of how your current system works• Plan an exit strategy
Challenges with the cloud• Security and Privacy• Service Quality Case Study: Amazon Web Services• Performance• Integration
HBR article suggestions• Ask vendors where and how the data would be stored• Ask how the vendors would guarantee the datas availability• Bring in specialists who are well versed in the technical issues of cloud platforms to closely read the service-level agreements offered by vendors
HBR article suggestions• Consider cloud-based processes along two dimensions: operational dependence and risk tolerance
Myths about the Cloud• Going to the cloud is “green”• Don’t have to worry about IT anymore• Will never suffer downtime• Save money
Choosing the right cloud for you• Risk tolerance• Payment options• Public or Private?
When it may not be right for the cloud• Sensitive data is best kept local. Sure you can use encryption, but with any good security paradigm you make it more difficult for hackers, bots and yourself• If your applications require specific hardware components, or your application requires complete access to the server, cloud computing may not be a good fit• Mission critical applications are not good candidates for cloud computing
Using the cloud now?• Amazon cloud player• Google Drive• Prezi• Slide Rocket• iCloud• SharePoint

Future of the cloud The global cloud computing market will grow from a $40.7 billion in 2011 to $241 billion in 2020, according to Forrester Research.
