Cloudonomics is a new way to discuss the benefits of private cloud. Many have focused on the cost reduction possibilities while others have focused on business agility. However, private clouds can play a strategic role as well. Not only can they enhance operational excellence and improve business processes but they can also improve customer relationships and the customer experience. It can help differentiate products and services and, it can accelerate innovation. Moreover, it can play a key role in sustainability, thanks to its ability to act as a substitute for other energy-intensive approaches and its ability to optimize physical processes.

Private PaaS is a key component of successful private clouds and an enablement layer that promotes flexibility, scalability, and ROI. It enables enterprise developers to leverage all the benefits of a public PaaS to deploy, manage, and monitor applications, while meeting the security and privacy requirements your enterprise demands. Additionally, the productivity and operational improvements it brings are critical to making sure your Cloudonomics make sense.

This webcast discusses:

  • The myths of private cloud and who should use it
  • IT costs
  • Private cloud benefits
  • The economics of private cloud
  • What is private PaaS
  • How Private PaaS proves Private Cloud ROI
