The last thing that enterprises want is the cloud to reintroduce silos into their IT

Business’ are now demanding a lot from their clouds. They want a solution that doesn't lock them into single vendors or single delivery models. For example, they want the flexibility to be able to develop applications in the public cloud and bring them back into private clouds when the applications are in full production. They also want the flexibility to be able to burst applications and workloads to public or hybrid clouds during peak transaction times.

Digital Planet ROI on HP Cloud Platform

This makes some interesting reading if you have time, on a company called Digital Planet. I am always interested to hear about companies like this that are transitioning to the Cloud. We talked about it a lot at HP Discover this year and even had some interesting guest speakers from Latisys and Mckesson Health Care that were there sharing their experiences with Cloud.

 

Digital Planet who is based in Ireland, has been working with many clients during the past 12 months, moving to a new cloud environment. Leveraging HP’s CloudSystem, they have been able to optimize their business offering; increasing revenue while reducing costs and achieving a 96% ROI over the ten months of operation. It’s an interesting article that is worth a read.

Using SaaS, no one knows you're a dog.

Software as a Service is increasingly seen as a great equalizer for small and medium sized businesses that require many of the same benefits of software solutions enjoyed by their larger competitors.
