Every day, CEOs and other top executives are targeted with articles spewing the latest technology buzzwords such as “Cloud”.  Cloud computing is an information technology (IT) paradigm, a model for enabling ubiquitous access to shared pools of configurable resources such as computer networks, servers, storage, applications and services. These resources can be rapidly provisioned with minimal management effort, often over the Internet. Cloud computing allows users and enterprises with various computing capabilities to store and process data either in a privately-owned cloud, or on a third-party server located in a data center – thus making data-accessing mechanisms more efficient and reliable or in a hybrid cloud where partial data is is stored in the private -loud and partial data in public cloud. The main benefit of Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economy of scale, similar to a utility.

Cloud environments have changed the way many companies do business. Startups can get to market faster with a lower barrier to entry than traditional environments have generally allowed. Existing companies can execute faster and with more financial resources once they make the transition. Let’s take a look at how the Cloud can benefit CEOs and other executives
