Justifying Your Cloud Investment: Test And Development

    Why Read This Report

    It's one thing to say infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals need to invest in infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud computing; it's quite another to justify the financial and resource commitments. This requires a business case that validates the investment on grounds of business empowerment, cost savings, or opportunity cost advantage. Positive return on investment (ROI) from cloud computing can't be achieved as a blanket business case because the benefits of cloud computing vary based on the application and use case. This report examines the case for testing and developing new applications in the cloud. Agility is a common cloud advantage, and this translates into faster time-to-resources for developers. But business justification only comes from ensuring the right fit between the applications and the IaaS solution and the right IT ops protections and processes.
