About this Book


Cloud computing, if used properly, is a technology with tremendous promise and potential opportunity for businesses of all sizes. Yet it’s a challenge for IT and business executives today to get a clear understanding of this technology while being overloaded by hype and often inaccurate information peddled by self-serving vendors and analysts.

How do you clear up the confusion; get past the fear, uncertainty, and doubt; and understand how and when the cloud best serves your organization’s goals and needs?

IT organizations face numerous challenges and operate with increasingly large workloads. Severe budgetary and headcount constraints are other banes. This is why we believe it’s a survival imperative to be able to appropriately harness the cloud as a potential new power tool for the IT toolbox.
