Competitive business environments are putting pressure on IT managers to accomplish more each year with reduced budgets. With the need for flexibility, competitive edge, and faster time to market, organizations must find new solutions that are more efficient and more cost-effective than their past or current solutions. Enter cloud computing.
Cloud computing enables organizations to utilize computer resources via the Internet instead of deploying in-house equipment. Organizations looking at innovative and cost-effective ways to build infrastructure, reduce licensing, become more nimble, and adapt quickly to market demands are moving into the cloud and SaaS applications. It's a strategy that boasts cost reductions, higher ROI, peak performance, and management relief in a utility-like pay-as-you-go service.

Cloud computing provides a remote service that users can access via the Internet. Cloud-oriented architecture describes an environment where applications act as services in the cloud and serve other applications in the cloud. The "cloud" is a metaphor for a global network, once used in reference to the telephone network and now commonly used to represent the Internet.
In an internal cloud, services are provided by an IT department to those in its own organization; whereas in an external cloud, services are provided by a third party outside the organization. In a private cloud, services are offered over the Internet (or a private internal network) to only select users, not available to the general public; whereas in a public cloud, services are offered over the public Internet and available to anyone who wants to purchase the service. A hybrid cloud, on the other hand, is an environment that includes multiple integrated internal and/or external providers.
What is SaaS?
Software as a service — Cloud application services, whereby applications are delivered over the Internet by the provider, so that the applications don't have to be purchased, installed, and run on the customer's computers. SaaS providers were previously referred to as ASP (application service providers).
