Cloud computing allows you to pay for space and storage on a pay-as-you go basis, leading to huge cost savings and eliminating infrastructure maintenance hassles. Change the way you work and collaborate online. Shared infrastructure with a single point of access for all computing needs means you pay the cloud service provider only for what you use and thus save on hardware and software expenses. Cloud computing is the future of enterprise computing and through this ebook, we share our thoughts on cloud computing with you. www.leosys.net firstname.lastname@example.org | 407-965-5509 Page |3 Cloud Computing benefits (ISV’s) Index 1.

Cloud computing services are a natural extension of Web 2.0 and are a practical way of accessing all data and applications from any location or platform. In the US, over two-thirds of web users make use of cloud-based services. Forward-looking companies of all sizes are now looking at the cloud computing model to reduce infrastructure costs and increase computational capabilities. It is important to choose a reliable vendor, offering the most advanced techniques to protect client data. The case for cloud computing • Cloud computing brings down hardware costs considerably. An inexpensive computer terminal with enough processing power to run the middleware necessary to connect to the cloud system is all that a company would require. • Companies don't have to obtain software licenses for every employee. Instead, the company could pay a metered fee to a cloud computing company. • Cloud computing gives companies the option of storing data on someone else's hardware, removing the need for physical space for storing servers • It lifts efficiency and brings about proper resource utilization • It reduces both capital and operating costs, through economies of scale. • Cloud computing facilitates rapid deployment and immediate scalability with no on-premise infrastructure. • It eliminates traditional IT infrastructure management hurdles that slows down and interferes with an organization’s overall progress. Cloud computing is likely to be adopted across enterprises within the next five years. There is no doubting the efficiency and financial benefits that cloud computing will bring. The greatest barrier to moving to the cloud relate to issues concerning: • Security & data privacy issues • Regulatory / compliance concerns • Ability to bring systems back in-house • Integration with existing systems Security concerns around this issue can be countered with the right technology and cloud computing systems can be made as secure - if not more secure - than existing server- based office systems. Cloud computing is a viable Internet model for small and medium businesses since it provides a cost effective solution to meet increasing computing needs and energy consumption.

Companies are increasingly using cloud-based integration to achieve business process automation (BPA) by leveraging software, hardware, storage, and networking all in one package. There has been an ever-increasing number of companies buying computing, storage, and networking power as they need it from the cloud. Most companies are still saddled with archaic systems and applications that lead to frequent errors, delays and inefficient business practices due in a large part to repetitive human interaction. BPA is the only solution to these issues in order to improve customer service and reduce costs. Software vendors, both large and small, are considering how best to adapt to the new paradigms of the RIA and SaaS markets, where a large number of developers are moving to RIA and SaaS application development. This has driven up demand for RIAs and technologies built specifically to develop and deliver them. When working on SaaS applications the expense involved with cloud computing is a fraction of what it would cost a company to buy and operate a similar system on their own. The Trend of the Future Cloud computing is the future of enterprise computing, providing an environment for efficiently running applications without buying costly, cumbersome servers and relying on tedious and error-prone processes. Cloud computing eliminates the need for capital expenditure on hardware, software and services, and works on the pay as you go utility pricing with no lock-in. In today’s economy, companies are focused on optimizing processes throughout the organization. Business Process Automation is the viable tool to automate activities and enhance productivity. It gives scale on demand and provides immediate access to a broad range of applications. Business Process Automation seamlessly integrates multiple web services, applications and human work groups into a single business process. In an increasingly competitive environment, BPA is the only solution to improve services while at the same time slashing costs.

In spite of recession, work must continue and hence it’s not surprising that there has been no let- down in outsourcing. In the light of the current economic downturn, more and more companies are planning to outsource either because they’ve cut full-time staff or because they’re simply unable to hire full-time staff. Making the best use of Outsourcing Achieving operational efficiency to mitigate bottom line pressures, and adopting stringent cost cutting measures are the need of the hour for companies reeling under the effect of the economic recession. Off shoring is a practical solution to stay afloat during recession, by making use of the services of external providers. Some of the strategies which companies can follow to maximize returns from outsourcing are highlighted below: During an economic down turn, buyers may need to reduce the number of offshore suppliers they use and partner only with those companies that have high levels of project management skills and the ability to deliver solutions at competitive rates. This strategy is important to remain viable and retain customers in the long run. Opt for flexible payment structures and shorter contracts. The benefits of outsourcing far outweigh the initial challenges that companies may encounter while opting for this business practice. Outsourcing non-core functions allows professionals to attend to key business needs. Companies have also discovered that adopting outsourcing as a strategy to reduce costs is the ideal solution in the bid to sustain their shrinking profit margins and IT budgets. Quality improvement is also cited as one of the biggest benefits of global sourcing. Closing Thoughts The maturing of the off-shoring industry over the years has lead to a scenario where outsourcing is no longer regarded as a mere tool for cost-cutting but is being accepted as a strategic tool for business growth and overall business development. This is further aided by the fact that generally outsourcers are equipped with higher skill sets and are subject matter experts in their specific fields. Recession will not derail outsourcing. The outsourcing experience has been overwhelmingly positive for most companies who now make smarter decisions in choosing offshore service providers capable of delivering the best results at cost effective prices. Outsourcing is on the upswing and a recession economy is only one reason for this trend. Companies looking at outsourcing software development projects are continuing to favor India as an outsourcing destination. IT professionals here are at par with the best in the world, yet they come at a percentage of the cost.
