Cloud computing is changing the way enterprises do business. Technology has long been a facilitator for business processes, so cloud computing is not unusual in that regard. Few technologies, however, have been adapted as rapidly or have had the wide-reaching ripple effects of cloud computing.
Many things are fueling cloud growth, from its ease of use to its low initial investment, but a key driver for enterprises has been the way cloud computing provides technology services in a less expensive and more efficient manner than had previously been possible. This allows enterprises to focus on their core business and leaves the management of IT services to cloud providers that are experts in technology services.
