for today’s mobile business.

Masters of Mobility

In addition to refocusing people on core capabilities, cloud computing can boost the uptake and application of mobility. This increases the benefits business derive from collective knowledge because that knowledge is more easily shared. If knowledge is power, then adding mobility creates knowledge. In a survey of executives conducted by Accenture and the Outsourcing Unit of the London School of Economics, half of surveyed business leaders said they believe that cloud computing facilitates a virtual/distributed organization, and 60% believe that business applications can be distributed far more quickly when they are in the cloud.

In a SandHill survey of 500 IT decision-makers, half cited business agility as their primary reason for adopting cloud services. Because you are buying access instead of actual assets, you can quickly scale IT products and services up or down depending upon need. Plus, there are no implementation bottlenecks, so users immediately benefit from new and improved technology.
