    Abstract

    :

    Cloud computing provides a new environment that enables organizations to leverage emerging technologies that address growing business challenges and to position their companies to be more competitive in a cost-effective manner. Cloud Computing is a way of providing and consuming IT Services. Cloud computing constitutes the biggest IT advance in years and touches on just about every facet of the enterprise. Topics can include development platforms, software/applications, service level agreements, enterprise security, outsourcing, Big Data, storage, Shadow IT, compliance and governance. Cloud computing is currently the most over-hyped and least understood technological innovation since the advent of the Internet. The latter tremendously impacted businesses of all sizes globally, and the former has the potential to similarly and dramatically transform the business and economics of IT over the next few years. The cloud is enabling new ways for IT to operate and is helping organizations to define a new, more collaborative relationship between IT and the business. Increasingly, IT leaders view cloud computing as a catalyst for change and are using it for IT or business transformation. The concept of cloud computing creates new challenges for security, because sensitive data may no longer reside on dedicated hardware. On the contrary, there are also potential security benefits of Cloud Computing.
