Cloudonomics: Making the cloud pay

You’ve heard the line over and over again “cloud computing saves costs.” But how does it save money and can traditional enterprises benefit from its value like the giant web companies have done? In most cases of corporates “moving to the cloud” certain technology assets will stay behind, and for good reasons, including legacy apps not architected for cloud and specific security and compliance concerns. Can the assets that stay behind shift to a private cloud and reap similar benefits to public cloud?

In this webinar we will discuss how the core characteristics of the cloud – such as on-demand resources, usage-based charging and geographic dispersion – translate into business value; revenue growth, cost and risk reduction, and improved customer experience.
