This allows us to demonstrate SmartGuide’s ability to quickly prototype, create, manage & deploy solutions seamlessly to the RIC’s secure environment” reports Philippe Lecoq, President and CEO.
All applications built with SmartGuide can also seamlessly be deployed at a later date in a secure private Cloud computing environment. As demand for Cloud computing is exploding, organizations seek to expand the impact of IT to deliver new and innovative services while realizing significant economies of scale.
The power of the Cloud computing model is the ability to harness varying technology investments by enabling rapid and dynamic scheduling, provisioning and management of virtualized computing resources on demand. According to IDC, $17 billion was spent on Cloud-related technologies, hardware and software in 2009. IDC expects that spending will grow to $45 billion by 2013 (http://itmanagement.earthweb.com/netsys/article.php/3870016/IDC-Sees-Cloud-Market-Maturing-Quickly.htm).
