What they should be thinking about is how cloud services might save time, provide a competitive advantage, might enable organizations to be more responsive, and yes, take advantage of the cost savings. Businesses we talk with are asking key questions, such as: Can cloud computing reduce IT costs and deliver attractive ROI?
