tw telecom Intelligent Network Presentation


Published on

Today’s CIOs are faced with a growing set of challenges to do more with less and make it…. Faster, Better, Easier. Challenges include:
Infrastructure needs such as virtualization strategies, data Center strategies, and optimizing resources
Application needs such as getting access to the best applications, rapidly deploying them to users and as a result reducing time to market for their services
Financial needs such as reducing capital expenses, linking expenses to consumption and outsourcing to 3rd parties
To meet these challenges, many CIOs are considering how Cloud Computing can play a role in their IT strategies. Benefits of cloud computing include:
Enhancing business agility
Linking expenses to resource consumption rather than resource capacity
Gaining access to a much richer range of services and applications at a much lower cost and in a shorter time frame than traditionally possible
