Abstract

© Springer International Publishing AG 2017. Cloud-based services provide a number of benefits in areas such as scalability, flexibility, availability and productivity for any organisation. These benefits can be further enriched by considering opportunities, which will allow for organisational enrichment at a strategic level. It is important to align businesses, ICT and security strategies to enable more beneficial outputs overall. Moving to cloud computing needs to consider strategic objectives of businesses essentially how IT cost impacts on the needs of future developments for businesses and IT departments within large organisations. Strategically implementing a cloud strategy can also be considered as a disruptive technology. Disruptive technology can be considered favourable in terms of offering organisational benefits. The most immediate benefits are consistent with reducing cost technology ownership, communication time therefore increasing the time benefits thus allowing organisations to become more productive.
