Cloud Computing Solutions

Cloud means different things to different people and even sometimes to the same people in different contexts. One common theme that cuts across all these different interpretations of cloud is the idea of “anytime anywhere delivery” of information and applications.

For most large organizations with a diverse mix of applications and platforms, moving to the cloud may require a complete rethinking of the IT environment, organization structures, roles and responsibilities, skills mix, development and support processes and even KPIs, SLAs and measurement metrics.
