Microsoft on Economics of the Cloud – White Paper

January 11, 2011

The Economics of the Cloud
Microsoft whitepaper outlines the underlying economics of cloud computing and the implications for the future of IT

“Computing is undergoing a seismic shift from client/server-based systems to the cloud, a shift similar in importance and impact to the transition from the mainframe to client/server. At the same time, global economic conditions and public sector fiscal constraints require more cost-efficient use of resources, even as demands to better serve citizens continue to grow. Government leaders have a critical need for a clear vision of where the IT industry is heading, and how the transition to cloud computing can contribute to their immediate needs for costs savings as well as their broader interests in economic growth for European society.

The paper “The Economics of Cloud Computing for the EU Public Sector” assesses the economics of the cloud by using in-depth modeling and analysis. We then use this framework to better understand the long-term IT landscape and what it means for governments”
