Cloud computing, in particular, is a hot topic these days. Many

performance and integration. The incorporation of cloud computing

enterprise IT—the data center. At IBM, we are seeing this in
thousands of cloud deployments, and in our own public cloud,
which manages 4.5 million client transactions every day.
