About the Book

Everyday business as we know it is poised for a monumental shift, courtesy of cloud computing--the biggest game-changer since the creation of the Internet itself. There's no doubt about it: If you want to compete in the future, you must begin educating yourself about cloud computing now.

From InformationWeek editor Charles Babcock, a leading authority on the business benefits and pitfalls of cloud computing, Management Strategies for the Cloud Revolution provides the tools every manager needs to create a new business strategy that harnesses all the power cloud computing has to offer.

Cloud computing is the equivalent of renting time on a computing infrastructure over the Internet, rather than building your own from the ground up. Access to the cloud is growing quickly, and the benefits are undeniable. Those who begin incorporating cloud computing into their business strategy will enjoy:

  • Dramatic Cost Savings: The cloud makes available innovative technologies that would otherwise be too expensive.
  • Ubiquitous Access: Employees can access the server power they need anytime, anywhere, and send it the program they want to run.
  • Unprecedented Agility: Business processes and business infrastructures can be altered quicker than ever.
  • Steady Traffic Flow: Even during peak loads, systems in the cloud can overcome bottlenecks and expand to meet the user's needs.

Working on the cloud, your analysts, business intelligence experts, and researchers can access large-scale, high-speed, highly reliable systems while paying only for short-term use.

You didn't set up your own electrical grid to power your computers. Why pay big money to use them when you don't have to? The cloud is on the horizon, and it's looming larger by the day. Learn how to take full advantage of it with Management Strategies for the Cloud Revolution.
