ThinkGrid and appiChar are aiming to offer cloud services such as SaaS and Hosted Virtual Desktops for charitable organisations. The cloud suits such organisations as they operate on a variable headcount and a low budget.
We heard Ian Osborne revealing the latest on the UK’s G-Cloud project.
This made me curious to check out how Uncle Sam is using the cloud. It is said that the US has saved 1.7m$ by moving its services site onto the cloud. Then it has allowed its army to adopt a cloud based CRM tool saving 90% of the cost. And its interior department (DoI) is on track to save 67% of the costs. And there is more.
This is the view expressed by David Linthicum in his cloud computing blog. So, it is really back to the basics then. Enterprises must look at their business problems and look for technology options that solve them instead of jumping on the private cloud bandwagon.
We agree. In fact we are trying to formulate a step by step process for creating a cloud computing strategy. We are sharing this message in our regional cloud workshops and webinars.
Do join us to know more about this procedural approach on October 6th between 2 and 2:30 PM BST.
