Planning for Cloud Computing

14 Feb 2011 • by Natalie Aster

London – “Cloud computing is a real innovation in the logic of how IT is sourced and managed and how services are delivered, and its use will grow steadily over the next 12 months.”

Cloud computing promises to tackles two hitherto irreconcilable IT challenges: the need to lower costs and the need to boost innovation. However, it will take a lot of effort from enterprises to actually make it work. Instead of moving their IT mess for less somewhere else, the ill-prepared will end up with their IT mess spread across a wider area. This report explains why.
