The rate of cloud adoption will continue to rise in 2019 and be harder to ignore as more CIOs are challenged by the enormous costs of managing infrastructure while dealing with the high costs of delivering availability, security and performance. With a booming economy, enterprises will often overlook inefficiencies and real infrastructure costs because they don’t have to worry about it at the time. However, forward-looking CIOs will start preparing for the inevitable downturn by focusing on reigning in costs and reducing operational risk, while delivering a superior experience to their customers.

In Parts 1 and 2 of this series, I outlined several key aspects of IT infrastructure, the prevailing types of cloud and managed infrastructure and the different approaches to creating a business case for the cloud. So how do we bring it all together?

In this series installment, we'll delve further into the different types of Cloud and the associated costs.

For those who approach new technology with some skepticism or reservation, this can appear as another overly-hyped marketing gimmick - especially for those that have recently made an investment in their premise-based infrastructure. However, for others it’s a powerful technology, enabling businesses to do more with less and access technology previously out of reach or reserved for very large enterprises. In this blog series we'll present the business case for cloud computing to empower more organizations to properly understand the business case and financial advantages that augment the technological benefits of migrating to Cloud computing.
