Cloud computing can enable innovation, dramatically reduce capital and operating costs, increase agility, and reduce time to market for new products and services.

With IT organizations spending as much as 30 percent of their budget on infrastructure (primarily data centers and data networks), shifting some or all of this work to the cloud can save organizations anywhere from 10-30 percent of their annual infrastructure spend -- savings that can either be returned to the firm or reinvested in growth and innovation.

Harvey Okin, a director in KPMG’s CIO Advisory practice, explains how to build the business case for cloud.

Listeners will gain an understanding of:

  • The two key drivers of cloud economic advantage
  • IT and business benefits that extend beyond cost savings
  • How to address the key C-suite concerns about moving to the cloud
  • How a three-phased approach to building a compelling business case for cloud can help accelerate decision making without putting undo strain on scarce resources
