The future is CLOUD - CLOUD Expo 2012
The Cloud Computing Expo 2012 in London was a clear insight into how cloud hosting is set to be one of the most important technologies for UK businesses during 2012. The number of organisations who are leaving behind traditional IT service delivery models and switching to cloud hosting is rapidly expanding. It is clear that businesses are realising that by outsourcing their IT to a third-party cloud hosting provider, they can reduce the need to invest in their on-site data centres. Cloud hosting services are delivered online, on-demand from remote sites, giving companies the option of accessing advanced applications and infrastructure without the up-front investment.
Guest speakers at the event covered all areas from ‘Cloud Computing Best Practise’ to ‘Cost Reduction through the Cloud’ to ‘The State of the Cloud in 2012’. It is clear that by Implementing Cloud for a business frees them up to focus on other areas because they are spending less time and money managing physical IT assets. There is even the argument that it increases the productivity of staff. In the current economic climate an increasing number of businesses are likely to embrace cloud hosting, eager to make IT savings and improve operational performance.
