Your Future in the Clouds: How Cloud Computing is Transforming the IT Landscape
August 6, 2012 Leave a comment
Since 2008, I have been working on building applications on the cloud. Over the past four years, I have seen terms such as “platform-as-a-service”, “multi-tenancy”, “elastic compute”, and “hybrid-cloud” become part of my everyday vocabulary. Sometimes I lose sight of the fact that the cloud itself is still an emerging space. There are many companies today who have yet to explore the opportunities that may exist for their organization in the way of cloud services. And there are many more individuals who hear the buzzwords are not quite sure what they mean and why they should care about them.
Dan Maycock, fellow Slalom consultant and national lead for technology strategy, and I recently took a step back and published a white paper entitled Your Future in the Clouds: How Cloud Computing is Transforming the IT Landscape. Geared towards the cloud newbie, the paper talks about cloud computing, some of its key concepts and benefits, and highlights a few of the projects Slalom has recently completed in the space. We try to provide a simple perspective on topics such as Computing Models, Storage, Security, and countless others.
Recently our paper has been featured on CIO.com! We look forward to helping you navigate the cloud and realize the opportunities that exist in your organization.
