Why Cloud Solutions and Services Matter

Cloud solutions and services offer compelling economic advantages while solving some of the biggest business and technology challenges that organizations face today:

  • They help enterprises IT shift spending from capital expenses (CapEx) to operating expenses (OpEx), share cloud solutions assets, and provide dynamic, on-demand delivery of services.
  • They help service providers with flexible new business models for launching and monetizing scalable services more rapidly and efficiently regardless of geography or size of business.

What You Need To Consider with Cloud Solutions

The first challenge when entering the "world of many clouds" is to decide which cloud solutions model is right for you and how best to connect with other cloud solutions to achieve your cloud's full potential. There are a number of considerations when adopting cloud solutions:

  • Time to market: Many businesses find that the time to staff with cloud expertise and the availability of cloud talent are major inhibitors to a timely, successful cloud solutions deployment.
  • User experience: Especially for applications such as collaboration and video, you need to provide a highly secure, consistent experience across delivery models and devices.
  • Performance, agility, and efficiency: You need a wide variety of innovative vendors that can provide and deploy cloud solutions to integrate with and support your chosen cloud solutions model.

It is important to carefully evaluate your technology choices in order to deploy cloud solutions effectively. Whether you are building or consuming services from private, public, or hybrid clouds, Cisco delivers all the necessary cloud solutions elements.
