In this lesson, you will learn how four distinct mechanisms of Cloud Computing contribute to cost savings:
-lowering the opportunity cost of running technology
-allowing for a shift from capital expenditure to operating expenditure
-lowering the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of technology
-giving organizations the ability to add business value by renewed focus on core activities
Special attention will be paid to how Cloud Computing delivers economic benefits beyond cost savings by allowing an organization to focus its resources on areas where it has the greatest strategic differentiation.
