 Abstract 
Te adoption o cloud-based business applications - tools and sotware delivered over the web with anon-demand, subscription-based model - has caught the attention o technology decision-makers acrosssectors. Many o these people want to understand the reasons or accelerating uptake in adoption o cloud services, and particularly to diferentiate cloud applications rom traditional on-premise/desktopsotware solutions. We believe that cloud computing, and particularly applications delivered via the cloud,bring unprecedented benets to organizations and will be the dominant way o delivering sotware in theuture. We urther believe that it is important that leaders within business who are tasked with makingtechnology buying decisions should be well inormed o the benets o cloud computing. Tis whitepaperwill ofer a list o benets that cloud computing brings to organizations and is a useul tool whendetermining an organization’s technology strategy.
Te ten core benefts we see cloud computing bringing, and the ten tests to prove that it does, are:

Cost savings
Even beore the current recession, businesses were acing dual pressuresto both reduce their operational budgets and more importantly reduce orremove expenditure on capital items. Tese dual actors have encouragedorganizations to look to cloud computing, and in particular cloud basedapplications which meet both o those objectives. Cloud computing solutionstend to have a lower total cost o ownership (CO) than traditional onpremise applications in part due to the greater economies o scale that cloudcomputing vendors enjoy - these economies o scale are created by usingshared inrastructure, distributed over all users. Cloud computing solutionsalso include the cost o any upgrades and maintenance in their subscriptionpricing, whereas with traditional on-premise sotware, maintenance is anextra cost borne by customers. Te on-demand nature o cloud computingsolutions also means that customers can increase or decrease their usagerapidly, thus enabling them to reduce their costs quickly in a downsizingsituation.In the case o small and medium businesses (SMBs) ordiscrete business units o larger organizations, theseentities tend not to have the complex, highly structuredneeds o large enterprises. Cloud computing solutionstypically have a eature set that is scalable both up anddown, giving these organizations the ability to grow intoincreased complexity as their needs change.Finally, cloud computing solutions tend to ofer ree trials and other optionsthat give organizations an extremely low barrier-o-entry into the product.Tis is in direct contrast to traditional on-premise sotware, which is gearedtowards large, out o the box investment and lengthy implementation cycles.
