Introduction to Cloud Powered IT
What is Cloud Powered IT?
Cloud computing represents a tremendous opportunity for enterprise IT. Traditionally, the constraints of on-premise technology have forced enterprise IT to spend up to 80% of its time “keeping the lights on.” Cloud powered IT organizations, on the other hand, are value centers, not cost centers. They can focus more on the business, its processes, and the apps required to support them, instead of just focusing on technology, infrastructure, and plumbing. Rather than being an inhibitor to innovation, the cloud allows IT to enable innovation with flexible apps that actually get better over time.
