ABSTRACT
In the last decade the companies more and more count on IT as a means of increasing their competitive advantage. However, the huge capital investments in hardware and software and the lack of enough qualified workforce are lowering the positive effects of using modern information systems. In order to satisfy the increasing business needs, the systems are becoming more and more complicated and hard to maintain. Bad planning of capacity and need of constant system updates often lead to unplanned stops which generate loses for the businesses. The Cloud Technologies and Cloud Computing make a paradigm shift by providing a thorough concept for creating a homogeneous environment through the offered services in the Cloud – Software as a service (SaaS), Platform as a service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a service (IaaS). The inherent to the Cloud cost cuts and shortened time for delivery do not reflect on quality of the service, even more this makes companies more competitive and allow them to focus on their core business. In the Cloud every user has an access to the highest quality of the needed services, and at the same time companies have the opportunity for painless transition from capital costs into operating ones. This decreases the risk and transforms the IT department from one with the highest risk to one which guarantees stability and provides prerequisites for competitiveness and sustainability.
