    1. 1. 1
    2. 2. Everyone is talking about Cloud….a lot of noise, everybody has their own definition! 2
    3. 3. What is Cloud Computing? 3
    4. 4. The one we like….Cloud Computing is a style of deliveringIT services to users without the need for the user to buy, install, manage or own any infrastructure. Everything will be delivered to you as a service – from computing power to business processes to personal interactions – wherever, however, and whenever you need it. Often characterised by: • Virtualised computing resources • Multi-tenancy • Massive scalability/elasticity • Web-based User Access • Dynamic provisioning • Pay-as-you-go pricing
    5. 5. Industrialisation of IT isInevitable “IT as a Service”  Efficient allocation of resources by specialists • Best of breed capabilities, limited waste  Resource pooling & distribution increase accessibility • Exponential cost decreases • Flexible resource access • Pay-per-use  Empowerment to focus on core business 5
    6. 6. Benefits of Moving to the Cloud 7
    7. 7. Ten Reasons to Make the Switch to Cloud ComputingSaves time. Businesses that utilize software programs for their management needs are disadvantaged, because of the time needed to getnew programs to operate at functional levels. By turning to cloud computing, you avoid these hassles. You simply need access to a computerwith Internet to view the information you need.Less glitches. Cloud computing enables users to integrate various types of applications including management systems, word processors,and e-mail. The fewer glitches, the more productivity expected from employees.Going green. On average, individual personal computers are only used at approximately 10 to 20 percent of their capacity. Similarly,computers are left idle for hours at a times soaking up energy. Pooling resources into a cloud consolidates energy use. Essentially, you saveon costs by paying for what you use and extending the life of your PC.Fancy technology. Cloud computing offers customers more access to power. This power is not ordinarily accessible through a standard PC.Applications now use virtual power. Users can even build virtual assistants, which automate tasks such as ordering, managing dates, andoffering reminders for upcoming meetings.Mobilization. From just about anywhere in the world, services that you need are available. Sales are conducted over the phone and leads aretracked by using a cell phone. Cloud computing opens users up to a whole new world of wireless devices, all of which can be used to accessany applications. Companies are taking sales productivity to a whole new level, while at the same time, providing their sales representativeswith high quality, professional devices to motivate them to do their jobs well.Consumer trends. Business practices that are most successful are the ones that reflect consumer trends. Currently, over 69 percent ofAmericans with internet access use a source of cloud computing. Whether it is Web e-mail, data storage, or software, this number continues togrow. Consumers are looking to conduct business with a modern approach.Social media. Social networking is all the wave of the future among entrepreneurs. Companies are using social networking sites suchas Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn to heighten their productivity levels. Blogs are used to communicate with customers about improvementsthat need to be made within companies. LinkedIn is a popular website used by business professionals for collaboration purposes. Also, targetgroups are tracked more efficiently by tagging networks on Facebook. New advertising techniques are also being used on these sites, andbusinesses are seeing the advantages of assimilating to a more modern world.Customize. All to often, companies purchase the latest software in hopes that it will improve their sales. Sometimes, programs do not quitemeet the needs of a company. Some businesses require a personalized touch, that ordinary software cannot provide. Cloud computing givesthe user the opportunity to build custom applications on a user-friendly interface. In a competitive world, your business needs to stand out fromthe rest. Customization is the solution for this problem.No need for hardware hiccups.IT staff cuts. When all the services you need are maintained by experts outside your business, there is not need to hire new ones. 8 Fact Lab Jan 2009 CEO Report
