    The Economics of Cloud Computing: An Overview For Decision Makers (Network Business)

    https://www.amazon.com/Economics-Cloud-Computing-Overview-De...
    The Economics of Cloud Computing An Overview for Decision Makers   Bill Williams Foreword by George Reese, author of Cloud Application Architectures   The decision-maker’s guide to cloud computing: from making the case to managing the transition   This concise book delivers the insight and tools you need to make intelligent decisions about cloud computing and effectively manage the transition to this new paradigm. Bill Williams explains how cloud computing platforms are transforming business IT and helps you fully understand the economies of scale and other benefits associated with “the cloud.”   Williams defines and explains cloud computing platforms and technologies, analyzes the costs associated with the IT supply chain, and (using industry standard metrics) creates a process for measuring the value of implementing cloud service models. He presents realistic and up-to-date ROI and NPV calculations comparing cloud strategies with conventional investments in owned/leased hardware. Through additional examples, he addresses costs and savings related to software licensing and disaster recovery/high availability, offering even deeper practical insight into the financial impact of cloud computing.   Writing for business leaders and “in-the-trenches” managers, Williams outlines the impact of cloud computing on the IT supply chain by contrasting legacy processes and systems with cloud computing implementations. To simplify deployment, Williams presents easy-to-use tables, a decision-maker checklist, and a comprehensive collection of additional resources for further study.   ·         Understand today’s leading cloud service and deployment models ·         Identify the major characteristics of cloud computing platforms ·         Use key performance/success indicators to measure IT performance and influence business strategies ·         Quantify the baseline costs of your current IT value chain ·         Use TCO, the payback method, ROI, NPV, and other metrics to justify cloud deployments ·         Calculate the total financial impact of migrating to “the cloud” ·         Place cloud computing in the historical context of technological revolutions ·         Recognize the long-term social and global benefits of cheap and ubiquitous computing   This volume is in the Network Business Series offered by Cisco Press®. Books in this series provide IT executives, decision makers, and networking professionals with pertinent information about today’s most important technologies and business strategies.

    Cloud computing is here to stay. If you’re a Project Manager, you’re increasingly likely to encounter situations in which cloud computing will have an impact on your project – whether you want it to or not! Often, you may have no choice – especially if a boss, customer or sponsor states, “You will use cloud computing in this project!” If you ask why, chances are the answer will be, “Because everyone else is using them!”As a PM, you need to be able to make sure that everyone involved with your project understands which of the three basic types of clouds are appropriate for that project. Each type of cloud has specific capabilities and limitations. Some come with different service models, as well as different “deployment models,” each with its own advantages and disadvantages.This book helps you cut through the jargon and hype surrounding clouds and cloud-based services. It will enable you to distinguish between the different types of clouds, service models, deployment models, and their relative strengths and limitations. It will help you:•Effectively manage project team and stakeholder expectations•Effectively plan, execute and monitor projects that involve clouds•Help your organization and customers avoid costly mistakes•Guide your organization to effectively leverage new cloud-based capabilities•Make clouds work for you and your project•Avoid common pitfalls (including security issues) when using cloudsThis book also maps the contents of key chapters to the process groups and knowledge areas in the PMBOK® Guide, allowing you to easily apply the accepted standards of project management to cloud computing.You don’t need to be a “techie” to benefit from this book.
