Top 10 Cloud Computing Most Promising Adoption Factors

Cloud Adoption Factors



Cloud computing has already fascinated many critics and observers by its progress and fast domination of the IT and Business world. It is on the verge of becoming world premier technology in providing computing services to the organization no matter how small small or big regardless of regional and economical status. It is a bit strange that even those close to this technology that many including CIOs and other concerned professionals still don’t know much about cloud computing.

The Cash Cloud

Cloud computing is estimated to save 20-30 percent of the expenses as compared to the client-server model. This huge saving will attract businesses towards cloud computing. This combination means both will affect and depend on each other.

The Most Important Thing Happening Around

Cloud computing is not only better computing but it is also very agile technology which meets the requirements of fast changing business trends. Cloud computing is introducing the new ways of business, and business changes the shape of cloud according to its own needs.

Shift to Cloud Computing is Inevitable

It is estimated that by 2012 only about 20 percent of businesses will be without cloud computing. The concept of business firms’ privately owned IT infrastructure will disappear by then.

Real-Time Collaboration in the Cloud

At present, real-time collaboration tools are much needed in business the world. Cloud computing has made it easy to implement. Now, workers in different locations are able to work on and use the same document. Google Docs and lotus Live have already offered it. Document sharing and updating from different locations will become very easy and just the way of the cloud computing life.

The Consumer Internet Becomes Enterprise

Cloud computing actually started as consumer Internet services like email applications and then eventually came Google Docs. That was a big breakthrough in computing and so the same will be expected from cloud computing new arrivals.

Many Types of Clouds

In the future, it is expected that there will be many established types of computing clouds. Mainly public clouds (used and shared by many people at different locations), Private clouds (owned and used only by private firms and organizations), Hybrid clouds with both types mixed to some extent. At present, this concept may be a bit confusing because organizations are trying to find out which cloud model will suit them best.

Security May Remain a Concern

Security still remains the main concern about cloud computing. In fact, most of the clouds will have the ability to be fool proof in terms of security but not all. Another reason for this concern is because of change. Any change is often associated with a sense of insecurity about it. (Fear of the Unknown)

Cloud Brings Mobility

One of the best advantages of cloud computing is the facility it provides regarding your location of working and accessing your data and information remotely. Now you can access and use your data at any location without any need to install too many software and hardware on every system you use.

Cloud is Scalable

Cloud computing is scalable for all types and sizes of businesses. Now, small business firms don’t have to buy costly software and hire skilled professional to use that technology. They will pay for what modules they use.

Quality and 24/7 Service

Cloud computing vendors will have enough resources to hire very skilled and professional workers to work on, maintain, and ensure the security and quality of your data. Businesses will get the desired data in as processed form as they will desire. Another plus point is 24/7 availability of the cloud computing services. Office workers will be able to work at any time and there will be almost no down-time because of resources, skills, and professionalism of the cloud computing vendors.
