Equipping the Enterprise to Use Data Quickly and Effectively

"Once a cutting-edge innovation that businesses regarded warily, cloud computing now is being widely embraced. It offers an effective way to store and use information and applications without the expense of the hardware, software licenses and technical expertise that in-house systems require. Organizations also can easily expand their use of cloud-based resources as needed and get access to updates and improvements automatically. For these reasons, the cloud has become a popular alternative to installing and maintaining information systems on-premises."
