Cloud-enabled Application Platform
Enterprises of all sizes today are more conscious of the need for IT efficiency and of the potential risks involved in handling all their IT needs internally. Many are turning to cloud deployment as a solution to the dual challenges of lowering costs while generating and sustaining growth.
Cloud-enabled application platforms (CEAP) are often low on entry price, easy to maintain, and provide the widest possible market reach, enabling enterprises to deliver a rich application experience over the Internet. A CEAP offering delivers a computing platform that can be deployed as a service, while maintaining compatibility with existing on-premise solutions.
Furthermore, CEAP has an integral role to play in the current global transition to enterprise mobility, enabling employees to access mission-critical applications and data in real-time from any location using their mobile devices.
The cloud computing models currently available include:
- Private Cloud: On-premise or off-premise cloud infrastructure operated exclusively for an organization, and managed by the organization itself or by a third party
- Community Cloud: On-premise or off-premise cloud infrastructure shared by several organizations that have mutual concerns, such as security requirements or standards compliance, and managed by the community itself or by a third party
