Cloud Computing Solutions for Business Transformation
For a large part of computing history, data centers and other computer networks used only about 10% of their capacity at any time with the rest left as head room in the event of occasional spikes in workload. Cloud computing platforms changed all that. Computing utilization rates went up and newer products could be developed faster and more easily on such platforms. In addition, this service could be provided as a utility much like electricity. This meant that consumers of computing or storage services paid for only what they consumed. These attractive value propositions have made what was an emerging area until five years ago, mainstream today. According to an IDC report, Predictions 2012, spending on Cloud services is expected to exceed US 23 B in 2012 and more than 80% of all applications developed in 2012 will run in the Cloud. Enterprises that only felt secure storing their data on-premise can now confidently move to the Cloud as new security certification programs such as FedRamp and CAMM are making the Cloud more secure.
Arbizz understands that the advantages of Cloud Computing to both enterprises and ISVs are many. No longer is there a need for capital expenditure on hardware, software or ongoing IT maintenance costs. IT is now largely a variable cost. No more headaches of ensuring that the system is up, that the latest updates are applied and that backups are taken. Since your IT department is no longer occupied with keeping the lights on, the role of the CIOs office and the IT team is becoming more strategic – that of enabling business functions to leverage relevant technology to accelerate growth. With almost unlimited scalability and the ability to make and roll out product changes quickly, enterprises can now confidently enter new markets, launch new products and comply with new regulatory requirements. Sonata has helped many enterprises and ISVs navigate the path to Cloud Computing so that the IT function becomes a key player in setting up organizations for long term success
