This book is a guide for managers and others involved in using cloud computing to create business value. It starts with a discussion of the media hype around cloud computing and attempt to pull together what industry experts are saying in order to create a unified definition. Once this foundation is created—assisting the reader's understanding of what cloud computing is—the discussion moves to getting business benefits from cloud computing. Lastly, the discussion focuses on examples of cloud computing, public clouds, private clouds, and virtualization. The book emphasizes how these technologies can be used to create business value and how they can be integrated into an organizations business intelligence system. It helps the user make a business case for cloud computing applications—applications that are used to gather/create data, which in turn are used to generate business intelligence.
