Five Free Information Assets For The Cloud Enthusiast

Five Free Information Assets for the Cloud Enthusiast

“One cannot resist an idea whose time has come.”

Victor Hugo (1802-1885), iconic French poet and writer.

While we here at CloudTweaks would certainly describe cloud computing as “an idea whose time has come,” but the fact remains not every organization is equally ready for the shift to the cloud. This is where EMC’s Cloud Readiness Flight Check – “an online channel focused tool which encourages prospects to assess how ready they are for the Cloud” – comes in. Take a look at this implementation guide for an introduction to this useful tool.

Continuing on our journey of providing our readers access to useful information assets, the next item up for consideration is this paper by the leader in networking, Citrix. This illuminating paper offers an insight into the company’s revolutionary TriScale Technology that promises to leverage the power of the cloud to allow organizations to:

  • Scale Up – Increase network elasticity with up to 5x faster performance on- demand, without the need for additional hardware using NetScaler Pay-As-You-Grow licensing.

  • Scale Out – Expand capacity up to 32x further with zero downtime and no idle network resources by leveraging TriScale Clustering.

  • Scale In – Simplify application delivery support to more applications and business units and put an end to device sprawl by consolidating up to 40 NetScaler instances on a single hardware platform.

The next asset is a comprehensive look at how cloud computing can revolutionize the ERP ecosystem. As you’re aware, an ERP system brings together information from all corners of an organization – Finance, Manufacturing, Service, Sales, Marketing, Human Resources, Customer Relationship, etc. – to improve efficiencies and effectiveness through optimal usage of resources, better planning, faster decision-making and eliminating redundancies. This paper explains how SaaS-based ERP is the need of the hour, and how you can go about implementing it.

The fourth asset deals with perhaps the most important aspect of business today – communications.

Here’s a survey that demonstrates how “IT leaders are turning to the cloud “as a service” model to deploy businesses communications applications.”

The final information asset in the focus this week is a paper that looks at how cloud computing can be leveraged in the demanding area of customer care. It also examines the emergence of cloud brokers as an important factor in cloud contracts.
