Cloud Computing Benefits – Simplicity & Velocity

The benefits of Cloud Computing have been a matter of discussion, ever since its inception. Anybody with a fair idea about this age of internet, virtualization and computing are well aware of how Cloud Computing has been a big boon to enterprises, both small and big, in terms of economy, agility, scalability and mobility. That being said, there are two perks of Cloud Computing that have not gotten the limelight as much as they deserve – Its simplicity and velocity.
The simplicity of an application can quite easily be measured by its degree of adaptability across different verticals of the same organization. To start with, Cloud Computing makes life simpler for the top management by enabling easier deployment of software across numerous IT environments. Secondly, the fact that upgrading & maintenance responsibility shifts to the vendor means the execution team requires less time, skill set and expenses to maintain system operations. Thirdly, it provides easier validation for licenses required for applications and additional storage capacity concerns, enabling on-demand purchase. Lastly, Cloud Computing unburdens the load off the owners by automating tedious, repetitive tasks and letting them focus more on things that make them more revenue.
Moving on to our second concern, velocity, there is a common misconception of considering velocity and speed to be synonymous. Velocity is different from speed meaning that it is not just a measure of how fast an object is traveling, but also what direction it is moving. A distinct character of a maturing Cloud Computing practice is its degree of optimization to get servers on the similar wavelength of the business environment and application requirements. For Cloud Computing to leverage velocity, it should be focused on a direction solely aimed at successful deployment of an application that enables the enterprise to generate more income.
An ideal Cloud Computing practice leverages operational efficiency because of its benefits that include enhanced agility, cost reduction, improved scalability and not to mention, simplicity and velocity. However, more than uptime and availability, Cloud Computing should base its focus on a methodology that will enable application optimization and a service level that can measure its success based on the performance of the applications.
