Cloud Computing

1. Introduction

            Business tries to maximise their profits with the help of the technological facilities that are made available at the minimum  price. One such facility is the cloud computing which helps in storing huge amount of data easily. There is no fear is losing the data and breaching of information.

2. Project objective

  • To evaluate the importance of the concept in business and identify the impact
  • To assess the advantages and disadvantages of the cloud computing faced by the business organisations

3. Project scope

            Most of the business organisations try to adopt the method of cloud computing to gain benefit from the service. However, selection of the suitable service provider is significant to gain the advantage. The appropriate selection would ensure the advantages and the disadvantages that the organisation would receive as a counterpart of the service. The scope of the project would be to identify the advantages ad use them for the benefit and protect the organisation from the potential threats that it causes from time to time.

Concept of cloud computing

Cloud computing has overtaken the IT business scenario where it shapes most of the changes in organisations. In the journal, “Advantages and challenges of adopting cloud computing from an enterprise perspective” by Avram, it is clearly explained about the popularity of the system which have been adopted by most of the business organisation. This new model of computing is available for lease and users can avail as per their requirements. This has enabled the business organisations to move their core function ........

Concept of cloud computing

Cloud computing has overtaken the IT business scenario where it shapes most of the changes in organisations. In the journal, “Advantages and challenges of adopting cloud computing from an enterprise perspective” by Avram, it is clearly explained about the popularity of the system which have been adopted by most of the business organisation. This new model of computing is available for lease and users can avail as per their requirements. This has enabled the business organisations to move their core functions and storage to the new available platform (Dinh et al., 2013). However, with the popularity it has been seen that the system has become complex and maintenance of the data and integration had involved risky transactions.

Impact of cloud computing on businesses

The significant system of cloud computing has all the potential to bring changes in the business processes that are followed by the organisations. The cost effective processes has enabled the organisations to focus on the innovation as their strategy rather than on storing of the data (Wubben et al., 2014). Since large data can be stored at a single time, it is quite significant that every organisation can invest in the side where they can gain more profit. Security breaching has been controlled to a greater extend where the information are stored with suitable and reliable outsourcing computing systems. Even the business organisations have enabled the expansion of the IT organisations providing the cloud services. 

Advantages of cloud computing

The concept has been a commoner with most of the business organisations they avail the storage space for the benefit of the organisation. They areconvincedwith the profits that have appealed them through the selection of the suitable storage provider. Below are mentioned the advantages, which have helped the business to succeed.

Low cost: Unlike traditional methods, cloud computing does not impose a huge infrastructure cost on the business organisations. The initial cost is according to the storage space that is availed by the business organisations, the storage increases as the business develops and the size of the data improves (Almorsy, Grundy and Müller, 2016).

Flexibility: Flexibility lies with the acquiring of the storage space according to the needs of the organisation. Every business organisations can avail the space of the storage according to the needs and customise as per the improvement in the business. There are no additional costs in the infrastructure setting; only little investment is required for the same. 

Accessibility:  the greatest advantage that can help any organisation is that availing of the required data at any point of the space. Regardless of the position, every information can be retrieved even at the moment of utmost urgency (Choudhary and Vithayathil, 2013). Therefore, this is the greatest advantage that any organisation can achieve.

Sustainability:Even if the system is damaged or there is a disaster that damages the entire set up of the organisation, the data stored are safe. The cloud storage is done elsewhere which remains safe and none of the damages can affect them.

Disadvantages of cloud computing

Security concern: though there are huge advantagesthat can help the business organisations in gaining the profitability, threat to the security is highest. 70% of the cloud service providers are of the opinion that the responsibility lies with the end users.On the other 30% of the end users are of the opinion that the providers should execute all the responsibilities (Rittinghouse and Ransome, 2016). This is the main reason behind the breach and the risk that information stored is exposed to most of the times.

Control over the storage: The data that is stored by the organisation is entirely within the control of the service providers. Therefore, the limitation in the access of the data storage has created great security risks for the business organisations. Even changing of the vendors is not as easy as it is considered. Usually, it is difficult to get the initial start by arranging the cloud. Suitable vendor selection is also a risk for the business organisations. Vendors with inappropriate service can ruin the storage of the data and the processes of the business organisations (Chou, 2013). Wrong selection often leads to the risks of information availability and security of the stored data.

5. Conclusion

            The business landscape have been changing with the introduction of the cloud computing. The transformative change has helped many of the business organisations to develop their processes and make the best out of the situation. The significant factor is the selection of the service providers who would be effective in the service and protection of the data from breaching. The advantages have to be solved through so that there is enough utilisation of the IT development that has enabled the business organisations to focus more on the innovation. Concluding the study, it can be evaluated that cloud computingmight be a boon to the business world, but is significantly dangerous if not handled with great care and cautious. Organisations should gather information and then proceed for the facility.
