Information technology (IT) is at a breaking point, and there is a critical need to improve IT’s impact on the business.

Consider the following:

  • • As much as 85 percent of computing capacity sits idle in distributed computing environments.
  • Seventy percent of IT budgets are typically spent on maintaining current IT infrastructures, and only 30 percent are typically spent on new capabilities.
  • Over 30 percent of consumers notified of a security breach will terminate their relationship with the company who contributed to the breach.

Clearly, infrastructure needs to be more dynamic to free up budget for new investments and accelerate deployment of superior capabilities being demanded by the business. Nearly all CEOs are adapting business models, and cloud adoption can support these changing business dynamics.

This paper will discuss how cloud is helping enterprises, governments and industries around the globe meet their current challenges through key value drivers.
