Business in the Cloud
IN THIS SUMMARY
Technology is rapidly evolving, and the costs for keeping up are soaring. Opportunities in the market exist for companies capable of ramping-up or scaling-down operations quickly. In Business in the Cloud, Michael Hugos and Derek Hulitzky explain how cloud computing offers a solution to businesses looking to become more agile and responsive. They believe that by outsourcing their information technology department, companies can have access to the latest technology at a reduced price. A major capital expenditure facing every corporation is information technology (IT). The solution to reduce costs is found in cloud computing. Outsourcing frees up capital and replaces fixed costs with variable costs. The new variable cost model meets three operating standards: low capital expense, variable cost of operations, and scalable computing platform.
