The internet created a paradigm shift in the way business is conducted. Email and scan replaced the fax machine and courier services. Orders for any service (or products) in almost all sectors can now be placed online directly and are sometimes executed in seconds. All of us want services and products to be on hand as and when we need it, anywhere, anytime. 


Just as Microsoft’s Windows became ubiquitous at home and work, and changed our lives, cloud computing represents a paradigm shift. It serves as an internet-of-things device and, by the application of service automation, it further provides related services on a personal basis.


Cloud computing is the latest paradigm shift in information technology. The core objectives of cloud computing is to provide the highest level of agility, performance and efficiency, thus completely revolutionizing IT service delivery.


A new generation of products and services 

Cloud computing has opened the door for a wealth of new products and services. With cloud computing, clients now have access to information technology services as a turnkey product. Documents and spreadsheets can be created in a collaborative space and edited in real time by multiple users at once, instead of the old method of incremental revisions and repeated distribution. 


Real-time partnerships and outsourcing with IT suppliers 

Cloud computing offers businesses the ability to connect to computing resources and access IT managed services with a previously unknown level of ease. At the basic level, cloud services include software and applications on demand so that end users can run programs without having to go through a lengthy installation process. Most of these partners are able to offer turnkey and on-demand support for dynamic systems that react immediately to businesses’ needs. 

Outsourcing IT needs is completed quickly in this new cloud computing paradigm; virtual resources are accessed as quickly and easily as resources in house. Best of all, since cloud computing is offered dynamically; businesses are only paying for what they are using, which greatly simplifies (and often reduces) operating costs.


A new generation of IT vendors 

With cloud computing growing in demand, new industries are being created to service these needs. These new breed of IT vendors now offer businesses the ability to scale instantly with easily tailored solutions to meet specific requirements of size and scope of the business without the need for draconian contracts. 


Shifting top level human capital 

Businesses now can make better use of their human capital, shifting from routine tasks to innovation. Instead of staffing full time professional to run their IT services, cloud computing providers can now handle many of the ancillary services at a rate consistent with the company’s needs. This means that companies can leverage their most technically savvy employees for innovation and strategy planning vs. maintenance.

Cloud computing has completely changed the delivery paradigm. With just an internet connection, software and other IT resources can be instantly accessed from any computer within the organisation, without having to go through a length set-up process. Thanks to software and hardware virtualization solutions, programs and computing power are no longer strictly tethered to physical systems anymore.


Conventional business infrastructure is getting an overhaul with the continued growth and adoption of cloud computing.
