Computacenter welcomes infiltration of cloud computing

Information technology services provider Computacenter said Thursday that cloud computing (computer files and applications that are delivered as a service over the internet) will infiltrate every organisation whether it's with the Chief Investment Officer's approval or not.

Information technology services provider Computacenter said Thursday that cloud computing (computer files and applications that are delivered as a service over the internet) will infiltrate every organisation whether it's with the Chief Investment Officer's approval or not.

The group said that as many as 98.9% of the organisations it interviewed claimed to use at least one cloud service.

In a statement released Thursday, Computacenter said: "The datacenter needs to continually adapt to cope with planned and unplanned demands from the business, an issue which has intensified with huge virtualisation sprawl and the expectations of cloud computing.

"With off-premise options snapping at the heels of the corporate data centre, IT departments need to ensure their on-premise services meet current and future business needs. And that means lower costs, greater agility and higher availability.

"Computacenter helps organisations find the best-fit, best-value solutions and strategies to make their datacenter more predictable, sustainable and affordable."

The company's share price rose 5.43% to 442.80p by 13:12.
