Cloud is more than a buzzword these days, it is an essential component for accelerating the growth trajectory of modern businesses. Understanding how cloud fits into the future of your company can make the difference between being able to out maneuver the competition or falling behind. Business cases that use cloud range from essentially being the business (e.g. for cloud-based applications) to providing scalable, cost-effective services to endusers of cloud-based business applications (e.g. cloud-based productivity and CRM tools).

Improve your ability to identify the Cloud tools and deployment models that will improve your ability to accelerate your business.
