Monday, October 10, 2011
The Open Group recently published a new book, Cloud Computing for Business: The Open Group Guide to address cloud issues through specific guidance on business drivers for Cloud; defining the Cloud vision and buying requirements criteria; assessing risk; and building the return on investment metrics and case for Cloud Computing. The book gives managers reliable and independent guidance that will help to support decisions and actions in this key operational area.
Cloud Computing is more than just a utility cost reduction exercise of your IT storage and computing assets through subscribing or purchasing to an on-demand, pay-as-you-go model. Cloud Computing is evolving into an ecosystem of services from storage, computing and network infrastructure to impacting the integration and application software to transform the business processes and market service models.
