Cloud Computing Services – The Emerging Trend in the Enterprise IT world

Updated: September 24, 2009

The latest buzz word in the IT industry is ‘Cloud Computing.' The term also called Software as a Service (SaaS) refers to a set-up where software is shared over a wide network of computers. Cloud computing services are a natural extension of Web 2.0 and are a practical way of accessing all data and applications from any location or platform. In the US, over two-thirds of web users make use of cloud-based services.

Forward-looking companies of all sizes are now looking at the cloud computing model to reduce infrastructure costs and increase computational capabilities. It is important to choose a reliable vendor, offering the most advanced techniques to protect client data.

The case for Cloud Computing:

  • Cloud computing brings down hardware costs considerably. An inexpensive computer terminal with enough processing power to run the middleware necessary to connect to the cloud system is all that a company would require.
  • Companies don't have to obtain software licenses for every employee. Instead, the company could pay a metered fee to a cloud computing company.
  • Cloud computing gives companies the option of storing data on someone else's hardware, removing the need for physical space for storing servers
  • It lifts efficiency and brings about proper resource utilization
  • It reduces both capital and operating costs, through economies of scale.
  • Cloud computing facilitates rapid deployment and immediate scalability with no on-premise infrastructure.
  • It eliminates traditional IT infrastructure management hurdles that slows down and interferes with an organization's overall progress.

Cloud computing is likely to be adopted across enterprises within the next five years. There is no doubting the efficiency and financial benefits that cloud computing will bring. The greatest barrier to moving to the cloud relate to issues concerning:

  • Security & data privacy issues
  • Regulatory / compliance concerns
  • Ability to bring systems back in-house
  • Integration with existing systems

Security concerns around this issue can be countered with the right technology and cloud computing systems can be made as secure - if not more secure - than existing server-based office systems. Top of Form
