The cloud in cloud computing provides the means through which everything from computing power to computing infrastructure, applications, business processes to personal collaboration can be delivered to the user as a service.
Cloud computing has become one of the most important technical and business trends in decades. Increasingly, companies are turning toward cloud computing as a way of increasing the agility of their computing environment. Management understands that IT is a business asset that should be able to expand and contract based upon need. They are looking for methods of having the best possible resources at the optimal price without increasing capital expenditures.
The movement toward this increasingly optimized cloud model is part of the movement towards the industrialization of computing. Therefore, cloud computing is helping to transform the way we think about using technology as a business asset and as an agent of change.
