Cloud





What is the cloud?

Cloud is here and now for every business and industry.

Cloud computing—the dynamic provisioning of IT capabilities, whether hardware, software (SaaS), or services from a third party over a network—is a delivery model that can provide increased operational and financial flexibility and reduced maintenance and support.

Cloud offers the ability to source, scale and deliver computing capacity. Benefits of cloud computing include improved speed to market, scalability and capacity, lower total cost of ownership, little to no capital requirement, and operational, contractual and financial flexibility. With a public, private or hybrid cloud, enterprises are able to better respond to the changing needs of the business and create new services to improve performance.
