"Cloud Computing:

The Businesses Impact of Cloud Computing"

Cloud computing is redefining IT operations by eliminating routine infrastructure deployment, configuration and maintenance. Once only a dream, today dynamic provisioning, paying for usage, and automatic recovery from hardware failures are changing the corporate data center and how IT is done.

Cloud computing is an enabler for new projects. Getting applications to market faster, and with lower capital expense, creates new opportunities. At the same time, cloud computing assures that as demand increases and businesses grow, resources can be added on-demand.

The presentation will give you all the basics you need to know about what cloud computing is, what it means for your business and why you should consider using it.
