Business implications of cloud 

Adopted properly, cloud calls for executives to challenge their thinking, to look at old problems in a new light, and to create new opportunities.

"For many organizations, the cloud is no longer a competitive advantage, but has become an operational necessity. But with that comes the care needed to optimize business performance, manage risks and get it right."


- Rick Wright, Global Cloud Enablement Leader, KPMG


Results from a recent KPMG survey show that 81% of businesses are either planning their initial cloud computing forays, are in early or advanced stages of experimentation or have full implementations.


In its simplest form, cloud computing is about shared IT infrastructure or the outsourcing of a company's technology.  Before moving to the cloud, businesses first need to examine their current IT infrastructure, usage and needs.


KPMG's series of thought leadership publications addresses the challenges and opportunities facing users, and providers of cloud.
