Cloud technology allows your business to easily and quickly gain access to computing, storage, software, development and network resources when you need them. Basically, IT resources become available on-demand. The cloud model helps offload capital expenses from your enterprise budget and moves it to a “pay-per-use” model, likely reducing:
- Capital investments
- IT spending
- Lengthy turnaround times
- Service-contract terms
With a cloud solution, the cloud service provider assumes the equipment and software risk. You would not be responsible for upfront purchases of equipment and software. The cloud provider makes the investment in the entire resource pool of equipment and software, and upgrades the resources ahead of your business needs.
