  3. 4. What is It <ul><li>Many definitions – shapes – sizes… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“… a style of computing where massively scalable IT-related capabilities are provided ‘as a service’ using Internet technologies to multiple external customers” – Gartner, September 30, 2008 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ The internet as an operating system” – Reuven Cohen, CTO Enomaly </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ It is a style of computing where IT-related capabilities are provided “as a service”, allowing users to access technology-enabled services from the Internet (&quot;in the cloud&quot;) without knowledge of, expertise with, or control over the technology infrastructure that supports them” - Wiki </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>HOWEVER – Internal “Cloudification” is occurring </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Conceptual comparison to utility services </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Corporations created their own electrical power </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The change: regional-based power suppliers provide ability to use power based on need </li></ul></ul>
