Every few years there is a new hot topic that becomes the focus for media and analyst attention. Enormous benefits are stated, and there are staggering predictions for market growth. The benefits may be real, and the predictions may be accurate, but they are given in such general terms that it is hard for a particular company to understand how it can take advantage of the new phenomenon and share in the growth.
This is certainly the case with cloud computing. Many benefits are claimed, including greater agility, lower cost, improved security, reduced risk, easier compliance with regulation, higher-quality IT support, and better business continuity. Analysts predict compound annual growth rates of over 25% in the cloud computing market.
