  • 7. So, what is the Cloud? Transformation of IT into a Utility.Servers, Desktops, Telephony, Backups and Software… Services you Subscribe to. On Demand access to scalable Computing Changing of IT Spend from a CAPEX into an OPEX Perhaps the Obsolescence of the PC Lower Cost, Faster Computing = Better Productivity Strategic IT Audit • Architectural Design • Implementation • Management
  • 8. Cloud – The Perfect Storm Why Now?Virtualization VMware, Citrix, Hyper-VFalling cost of bandwidth Data circuits are getting faster and cheaperChoices Public VS Private clouds Strategic IT Audit • Architectural Design • Implementation • Management
  • 9. Cloud – What you get!Productivity – tremendous time savingsFlexibility – access from any locationScalability – increase size and performanceAccessibility – always on 24/7Portability – access from any deviceReliability – fewer hardware concerns Strategic IT Audit • Architectural Design • Implementation • Management
