  9. 9. The cloud is a group of servers. A user interacts with the cloud without worrying about how it is implemented. The cloud company does all the magic-It's like a laundromat Cost – only pay for what you use. No up front cost of buying servers. Device – internet connection provides access to everything. No physical proximity is needed. Multiple users- many people will be using the same cloud. Pooling demand will make it easy to cut prices and maximize server efficiency. Reliability – cheaper to create space for backing up data on the cloud. Data is on virtual servers. Scalability- if your website suddenly gets a spike in visitors the cloud will allocate more space to your website allowing it to grow or shrink to match demand and save money. Security – potentially better security with quicker upgrades, patches, response by a whole company setup to maintain the cloud and their reputation. New Computers- The netbook, typically weighing less than 3 pounds with no cd drives. By utilizing the cloud, netbooks need less hardware and are then able to cut their prices.

  14. 14. Virtualization is the creation of a virtual (rather than actual) version of something, such as an operating system, a server, a storage device or network resources. There are three areas of IT where virtualization is making head roads, network virtualization, storage virtualization and server virtualization. Virtualization lets you run multiple virtual machines on a single physical machine, sharing the resources of that single computer across multiple environments. Today’s powerful x86 computer hardware was designed to run a single operating system and a single application. This leaves most machines vastly underutilized. Different virtual machines can run different operating systems and multiple applications on the same physical computer.
  15. 15. •Cut capital and operating costs while increasing IT service delivery without being locked into limited choices of operating systems, applications, and hardware. •Reduce hardware and operating costs by as much as 50% and energy costs by 80%, saving more than $3,000 per year for every server workload virtualized. •Simplify backup and recovery of your data and systems by leveraging the benefits of a virtualized datacenter. •IT operations are more efficient and effective with virtualization. •Stretch your IT budget by getting more out of your existing storage, network and computing resources. Allocate assets when and where they're needed and quickly reallocate as business needs change. •Recover from disasters more rapidly. •Improve desktop manageability and security: Deploy, manage and monitor  secure desktop environments that users can access locally or remotely, with or without a network connection, on almost any standard desktop, laptop or tablet PC.

Intermediaries will evolve to add value or perish. Customer service will become the primary value-added function in every business. Human involvement in service will shift from routine, low value tasks to high value, personal consultancy on important issues-problems or desires- for the customer. Companies will use a digital nervous system to regularly transform their internal processes to adapt to an environment that constantly changes because of customer needs and competition.
  18. 18. IMPLEMENT A DIGITAL NERVOUS SYSTEM Digital Nervous System Seeks To Create Corporate Excellence Out Of Individual Excellence On Behalf Of The Customer To begin creating a digital nervous system, you should first develop an ideal picture of the information you need to run your business and to understand your markets and your competitors. Develop a list of the questions to which the answers would change your actions. Then demand that your information systems provide those answers. When information flows as through your organization as quickly as human thought. It’s Business At The Speed of Thought
  19. 19. INNOVATE THROUGH TECHNOLOGY Differentiate Your Company In The Information Age Enable Your Information to be put to work on behalf of your customers Information Flow is the primary differentiator for business in the digital age.
