Some time back, I had outlined the steps that CFOs should take in order to effectively compute the cost of cloud computing for their enterprise at any point in time. The thoughts I shared in this post came to mind when I read a post by Chris Harding, Forum Director for SOA and Semantic Interoperability at The Open Group. In his guest post titled Counting the cost of cloud on Dana Gardner's BriefingsDirect blog, Chris characterizes a typical conversation that would have happened in the traditional environments when demand exceeds capacity and contrasts it with a similar conversation in the cloud computing environment today. I like Dana's summary that hits the point home - IT costs were always a worry, but only an occasional one. Cloud computing has changed that. We need to track the cost of cloud and the returns realized on a continuous basis in order to be effective cloud consumers realizing business value for our shareholders.

Most Health and Life Sciences (HLS) institutions are struggling to deliver quality care at an affordable price. Yet, primary focus of healthcare expenditures in the U.S. today center around “sick care” rather than on wellness.
I recently read an article titled, “Six factors impacting industry transformation – from sick care to integrated health management,” by Harry Kim. In it, Kim describes a “perfect storm” of 6 factors that are causing transformation of the healthcare industry.
In the Information Week Global CIO blog, Patrick Houston says that big is bad when it comes to data, questioning the appropriateness of the term big data. Houston highlights the risk of the term being taken literally by the not-so-technical folks. Big data will continue to spread with emerging associative terms like big data expert, big data technologies, etc. I also see other reactions to this term like the one in this post from Allison Watterson on What do you mean big data, little data is hard enough. Why has big data gained this broad adoption so fast?
Of late, I have become an avid reader of the HP Industry Edge ezines. I have shared my ezine experiences in multiple blog posts recently including those on Financial Services and Health Care and Life Sciences. This weekend, I perused the one on Communications. The lead article in this edition is Profiting from the new normal in IT and Telecom by David Sliter, vice president and general manager of the Communications, Media and Entertainment (CME) Solutions organization at HP. It also references several case studies on solutions that deliver on outcomes that matter.
