Cloud computing promises to be a fundamental transition in the evolution of IT. Measurable benefits such as lower costs, greater agility and better resource utilization have spurred initial adoption. Public cloud Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service are already quite popular, but the focus is shifting toward the Platform-as-a-Service model, and increasingly, the private cloud deployment model. In this white paper, CSC and Oracle will offer guidance, tips and strategies to help organizations plan their transition to a cloud computing framework for enterprise applications. We’ll discuss this issue in the context of CSC’s and Oracle’s strategy—leveraging many of the advantages of the cloud to evolve enterprise applications and the environment in which they reside. We’ll look at how to determine which cloud models best suit an organization��s enterprise application ecosystem; how to get started; how to assure security; and at some of the management strategies that will ensure success.
