Cloud computing provides on-demand access to compute resources and advanced capabilities in a cash-flow-friendly delivery model. As the demand for greater corporate flexibility increases, cloud computing solutions are finding homes within numerous data-management ecosystems because organizations can quickly provision and scale resources to meet shifting customer demands.
With advanced technology and lower capital expenditures, cloud computing allows IT departments to better serve users, and the technology delivered can match new workloads and bigger data sets on the most advanced platforms.
In the past, enterprises mostly focused on structured information stored in relational databases, but with new technologies, all data — including social, machine, sensor and other data — can be incorporated into analytic processes to provide greater insights and predictive capabilities. Now large-volume, high-velocity and multi-structured data that was too complex or expensive for companies to collect and use can be effectively analyzed in a cloud environment.
