Recognizing the promises of Cloud Computing Cloud computing is no longer just a buzzword, it is the next evolution of IT architecture and consumption. Just as the client/server model powered the last twenty years of growth in IT, cloud computing promises to take your organization to the next level of technology efficiency and profitability. Unfortunately trying to determine what you should still be doing yourself and how various service providers can help, is challenging. Worse still the cost savings you thought you would see can be easily eroded by poor decision making. Join William Bell, VP of product development for Phoenix NAP, as he addresses these topics and other trends within the current IT climate; and how you can successfully navigate the evolving cloud computing landscape to achieve positive operational and financial results.
