Why Read This
Cloud computing has changed the way that IT computing resources are being delivered and consumed, but this change has yet to really affect companies' underlying business models. Although today's CIOs value the flexibility and opex consumption model of cloud-based IT, multitenant computing architectures have really only contributed value in terms of IT operations and cost reduction. But multitenancy has the potential to really change how enterprises interact with each other beyond cloud computing — to articulate trust relations and dramatically reduce manual effort in an unmatched way. This report introduces the concept of business networks and explores how the further development of multitenancy business models will soon enable the next generation of business innovation.
