Exploring the Cloud Computing (CC) commercial landscape as it matures; this book asserts that the key ingredient in sustaining the Software as a Service (SaaS) business model is subscription renewal. Chronicling the evolution and future trajectory of the CC concept, the authors examine the new paradigm it is creating for the distribution of computer software applications among business-to-business (B2B) clients. CC enabled SaaS has been fundamentally changing the revenue expectations and business model for the application software industry, and impacting on how SaaS providers pursue, acquire and retain B2B clients. Securing SaaS subscription renewal is critical to the survival and prosperity of this business as attrition can have a significant impact on the financial viability of SaaS businesses based on this model. Focusing on the B2B client and the SaaS industry dependency on renewal subscriptions delivered through the CC channel, the primary research presented in this book seeks to examine the key drivers behind the B2B SaaS subscription renewal decision and, in doing so, to explore the recurring revenue framework for the Cloud SaaS business.

Digital Transformation in the Cloud: What Enterprise Leaders and their Legal & Compliance Advisors Need to Know
We live in a time when enterprises large and small are racing to transform themselves with unprecedented new technologies. In every region and country of the world, organizations of all kinds are striving to create more value than ever before for customers, shareholders, employees, citizens, and society at large. Cloud computing, mobile devices, software-based intelligence, universal access to information—these digital technologies are remaking enterprises, government, nonprofit organizations, and the everyday lives of the billions of citizens of planet Earth.As enterprises instill ever more intelligence into their business processes and automate more tasks, their leaders must grapple with profound existential questions. What is our true purpose as an organization? How do we create more value? Are we doing all the things we should be doing, and only those things?Today, no enterprise is an island. The question of what to delegate and to which partners has become strategic. The benchmark for any value-creating activity is the market. The enterprise that chooses to keep an activity in-house is saying it can match the best in the world in this activity. The cloud computing revolution is driven by the realization among enterprise leaders—from Fortune 50 behemoths to agile startups—that IT infrastructure and broad business software functions are no longer part of their core value-creating mission.But delegation inevitably raises questions of confidence and trust. An automobile manufacturer may choose to buy steel and glass and specialized components from outside suppliers. Yet if this supply of vital raw materials is interrupted, if the components prove unreliable or even dangerously defective, the act of delegation can damage or even destroy the enterprise.Read more:Cloud computing means entrusting to partners the critical activities of information processing and dissemination, activities that are as vital to the enterprise as the pumping of blood is to living organisms. The cloud therefore demands a new foundation of trust between cloud service providers and their customers.This foundation stands on three pillars: security, privacy, and compliance. Data must be secure from deliberate and accidental disclosure or loss. The privacy of all individuals—customers, employees, patients, students, citizens—must be protected. National and international laws governing the use and protection of data must be complied with, as must regulations and standards applicable to specific industries.This book is intended as a strategic road map to secure, privacy-protecting, and compliant cloud computing for enterprise leaders together with their legal and compliance advisors. We review key strategy issues and examples of the challenges enterprises face as they pursue digital transformation while striving to protect all stakeholders.

Cloud computing is “the next big thing” in computer technology and the Google Chrome Operating System is at the forefront of its development. With Google Chrome, the software and the documents you create are all stored on Google servers somewhere. Everything is saved automatically, and backed up automatically. If your Google Chrome computer gets stolen, you lose nothing except the computer - all your stuff is still there on the Google servers. You don’t have to worry about viruses because there is an army of Google engineers watching out for them. Perhaps the most revolutionary aspect of Chrome computing is that almost everything is free. That includes the operating system and a complete suite of office applications. Even the computers themselves are very inexpensive with prices starting at around $200.Cloud computing may be the next big thing, but that means that people who want to make use of this new technology will need a guide to help them make the transition from the old way of doing things to the new Chrome way. This book is just such a guide. It distills hundreds of pages of Google support documents into 116 pages of detailed instructions on how to setup and how to use all of the powerful features Chrome makes available.This book explains all of the newest Chrome technologies such as: Two-Step Authentication, Application Specific Passwords, Google Cloud Print, Google Docs, Gmail, Google Groups, and much more. What sets this book apart is that it not only describes these various aspects of Chrome, it also provides step-by-step instructions for setting-up and then using all of the modern Chrome features. Numerous screen shots are included to help clarify what the text says.Whether you have just bought your first Chromebook laptop or whether you have been using the Chrome web browser for some time, you will learn something, perhaps a lot, from this book. Chrome is going to revolutionize the way computing is done in the future. And you can experience that future right now. This book is going to tell you how.As an example of the level of detail you can expect from this book, here’s a summary of the contents of Section 3.3 discussing Setting Up a New Google Account:3.1 Choosing a Strong Password3.2 Creating a New Google Account3.3 Securing Your Google Account3.3.1 Turn On Encryption for Your Account3.3.2 How Does “2-Step Verification Work”3.3.3 Set-Up “2-Step Verification”3.3.4 Generate and Print “Backup Codes”3.3.5 How Do You Use “Backup Codes”?3.3.6 Generate and Print “Application Specific Passwords”3.3.7 How Do You Use “Application Specific Passwords”?3.3.8 Revoking “Application Specific Passwords”3.3.9 Returning to Your Security Settings Page
