Cloud Computing Video channel – View all videos here

While cloud computing has continued to evolved from the the time these videos were produced, the fundamentals remain the same.

Getting the fundamentals right is a prerequisite to ensuring that your particular Cloud computing initiatives are successful with known cost, known risk and known value.

The series covers Cloud computing from every angle, be that as a cloud buyer, cloud vendor cloud technologist, cloud regulator, cloud broker, cloud auditor and so on.

However, the primary focus in this series on the software layer – after all, that’s what the business and its customers see and use. This means that the messages are immediately relevant to non-IT Business managers and other stakeholders.

Produced in 2012, these covered most of the fundamental aspects of Cloud from a business perspective, including commercial, legal, regulatory, compliance, cost, risk and security perspective.
