Cloud Keys An Era Of New IT Responsiveness And Efficiency

November 19, 2012


Why Read This Report

The cloud landscape is shifting to cover a broader range of enterprise needs. Why? Cloud is curing the lack of responsiveness and economic flexibility that ails on-premises IT. Look for the popular software-as-a-service (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) models to become much more flexible by allowing more customization and integration. Look for more pragmatic cloud development platforms that cross the traditional cloud service boundaries of SaaS, platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and IaaS. And look for good private and public cloud options — and simpler ways of integrating private-public hybrids. This report charts the shifts taking place in the market as indicated by the most advanced cloud developers and consumers.
