After reading many articles about Cloud Computing I saw the bright future for these types of cloud services. Aside from educating myself on this topic I feel that this could be beneficial to my fellow Computer Technology peers to address their client or employers cloud needs as well as people who are going to start a business and are looking at the options available to address their companies demands.
Cloud computing has changed the Information Technology by introducing a new concept and platform of enterprise system. The traditional enterprise system is characterized as clunky, expensive, and complex for most organization to implement and use. Nevertheless, cloud computing enterprise system offers with a competitive advantage. The advantage offered lies in the cloud ES offering flexibility, scalability, and independence in IT infrastructure and capabilities. Cloud computing holds great potential for the business world and has many advantages and challenges. Cloud enterprise system offers with an attractive option to businesses in solving problems associated with high investment in Information Technology infrastructure and Information Technology resources (Fortiş, Munteanu and Negru). Today cloud computing is considered as the fifth utility after water, electricity, gas, and telephone. The aim is making cloud services readily available on demand like all other utility
This research paper tackles the issues that faces Cloud Computing today and gives the experts and industry’s point of view on the matter.

Cloud computing has grown in popularity to the point that it is now becoming the preferred method of the business community for accessing services on the Internet. This paper examines the reasons for this growth and explores the benefits and drawbacks of this technology.
Though the actual history of cloud computing is not that old (the first business and consumer cloud computing services websites – salesforce.com and Google, were launched in 1999), the story of cloud computing is intertwined directly with the creation of the Internet and business, the answer to the unsolved question of how internet utilization can help improve business technology was and is cloud computation. Business technology history is both extensive and interesting, almost as extensive as business itself, but the invention of computers are most responsible for the influence on business technology. Cloud computing, like all other innovation was nurtured in the right environment to take off, as multi-tenant architectures, highly
Virginia Watson Ross 2010 believes today’s organizations are being tasked with finding ways to minimize costs, while their computing and data needs grow, cloud computing is a viable option to consider. With its economy of scale and high performance assets, it has the potential for meeting increased organizational computing and data management needs., and surges in demand, while minimizing costs. The challenge is to determine what factors drive a company’s decision makers to choose or not to choose to employ cloud computing to meet organizational needs.
Cloud computing is an emerging Information Technology (IT) model whereby a company utilizes a pay-per-use service for it computing needs rather than maintain a local data center run by its in-house IT department. By treating computing resources as a commodity or operating expense, it allows firms to focus less on IT and more on the core elements of the operations strategy. Because of advantages like this, its popularity has grown exponentially in recent years. However, cloud computing also has certain inherent risks in its present form. This paper seeks to understand the key advantages driving businesses to adopt this computing model in ever increasing numbers,
Cloud computing is a shift in a new way of thinking that believes in data sharing & computations over a cloud or network of potential nodes This network consists of data centers, computers, and web services in order to make the cloud work. An application based on such clouds is taken as a cloud application. Cost Efficient: , in conjunction with the Manchester Business School and Vanson Bourne recently conducted a survey of 1,300 companies in the U.K. and U.S., supplemented by qualitative telephone interviews by the Manchester Business School with companies that used the cloud during December 2012 and January 2013.study found that 88 percent of cloud users pointed to cost savings and 56 percent of respondents agreed that cloud services have helped them boost profits.
Cloud computing is a popular and widely accepted paradigm built concepts such as on-demand computing resources, elastic scaling, elimination of up-front capital and operational expenses, and establishing a pay-as-you-use business model for computing and information technology services. And the adoption of virtualization, service oriented architectures, and utility computing there has been a significant development in the creation of cloud
In an attempt to gain a competive edge, businesses are increasingly looking for new and innovative ways to cut cost while maximizing value—especially now, during a global economic downturn. Businesses realize they need to grow and are simultaneously under pressure to save money. Moving to cloud computing can help organizations survive in tough economic times; equipping them with the
Undeniably, the internet technology grows exponentially since its inception. Currently, a new "trend" is emerging in the world of IT (Information Technology and Communication), this is cloud computing. This technology, based on the WEB 2.0, provides opportunities for companies to reduce operating costs by their software applications online. Various vendors like Google, Amazon, and IBM offer a wide range of cloud computing services (Schroth, 2007). This technology has just hatched, it is at the beginning of its operations but already several major players mentioned above adopt their own pioneering strategies that determine the use of cloud computing companies wishing to invest.
Cloud based computing can be considered as an upcoming computing paradigm or a business model allowing organizations and businesses to Incorporate IT capabilities without having to Invest heavily upfront to set up the IT infrastructure. It is incontrovertible that the capabilities and the advantages provided by cloud based services can greatly benefit businesses and organizations around the globe, but there remain some unresolved issues with respect to cloud based systems that can hinder
The introduction of cloud computing have change the way many organisations have been thinking as what is considered to be ‘’our system’’ and ‘’our Data’’ which is no longer stored in a specific physical computers or disks but is rather on a conceptual system and location , which have evolved and diffuse geographically. A potential deduction is that it makes it harder to have every data under one roof or under control. So, as one of the major technology development, there is a potential concern amongst organisation adopting the cloud computing services and others factors that it may offer. To understand this factors that might limited the adoption of cloud computing, we must first look at the technical, economic perspectives. The research will try to address factors which might influence organisation and especially in the third sector such as performance and the running cost of cloud computing. The evaluation will be based upon previous research and the goal is to discern factors affecting, when possible
We then pay for a vast rate of the aggregate cost of the application in advance and that venture is bolted into the achievement or disappointment of that application. cloud computing changes that, nonetheless, in ways that have been expressed by numerous in the course of the most recent few years. The basic element is that cloud computing can move venture from the application point of view from a capital-concentrated exchange to a continuous operational cost. Other variable that is driving undertakings to consider the cloud is at last a similar thing that drives new companies into the cloud that
For commercial organizations, cloud computing does not mean putting all data information in virtual storage on the Internet network such as iCloud, which is serviced by the Apple Company. Cloud computing in commercial organization means the firm and business to gain lower barriers to entry into business because of cost –effectiveness in IT, the ability can grow faster, the significant scalability and flexibility of IT-bases and cloud services. On the other hand, the cloud computing technology is not a miracle service, which always benefits every business (Colt, 2014, n.p.g.). Consequently, any commercial organization has to consider the different needs, of a company
