The subject of cloud ROI is critical in today’s industry, seeing how business applications and services are increasing being used on an “as-a-Service” basis from the cloud, which shapes the core of important business operations.
When it comes down to it, most decision makers require evidence of a real ROI model before officially making the move the cloud, even despite knowing the plentiful benefits which the cloud offers. Some of these widely known benefits include instant scalability, increased flexibility, and of course, cost-savings.
This is where CLOUD4SMB Expo comes in.
“To help executives and IT managers quantify the benefits of a cloud strategy, this season will provide real-world use cases that prove real ROI on cloud investments,” a statement explains.
“Today’s IT departments are faced with the dilemma of picking solutions with the least cost, but the highest level of benefits. As companies shift to the cloud in the post-PC era, they reap the benefits of scalability, higher availability, and lower cost,” Shahzad explains in said statement.
“The purpose of this panel is to help attendees understand the base assumption connected with a move to the cloud, how to determine if going virtual is right for their business, and how they can compete and succeed in their industry by utilizing the cloud.”
