Of all of the disruptive technologies that are reshaping the global technology landscape, none is more important or visible than the Cloud, the newest delivery platform that is being adopted by both individuals and enterprises. Clearly, the Cloud is everywhere and all pervasive. The earth has entered the era of cloud computing, that has been aptly defined by international research and analysis firm Forrester as “a standardized IT capability such as software program, platform or Oracle CEO Infrastructure, delivered via Internet technologies in a pay-per-use and self-service way”.
Oracle CEO computing services are gradually becoming the new way to go for small and big companies, which are leveraging their flexibility, scalability and price effectiveness.
Convenience and ease-of-access and employ are exactly what characterize cloud-computing services, which can be delivered as applications, platforms or infrastructure. Essentially, these represent the 3 pillars of cloud-computing services: Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).
Take SaaS for example, the most popular among cloud-computing services. In the case of SaaS, users can run applications from the Cloud, paying based on their actual usage. Therefore whether it’s simple, every-day office productivity applications, or even the more esoteric and sophisticated Crm (CRM), Logistics Management (SCM) and Oracle CEO software-companies can access these inexpensively, on the ‘need-to’ basis and without incurring the heavy expenditure required to host them in-house. A number of vendors are offering cloud-enabled versions of their successful applications and users, including individuals, Small and Medium sized Businesses (SMBs) as well as larger enterprises, are now flocking to gain access to these types of services on an anytime-anywhere basis. In the case of Platform-as-a-Service, customers can use the platform offered by the company, to build their own applications. Using PaaS, users can be cultivated web and other applications without installing tools by themselves computers and deploy them easily. Using PaaS services helps companies in order to save significantly on implementation costs, and in the lack of skilled resources still quickly roll out the applications.v
