Cloud lends: (i) speed, allowing for accelerated innovation; (ii) empowerment, giving users and developers the tools they need and; (iii) economics, saving time with self-service and only having to buy what you need the Cloud is truly changing the game.
This is true not only for largest organisations but for organisations of all sizes, industries, geographies and market share. The start-up world is a perfect showcase for how Cloud is the ultimate game changer.
In this short video Brendon McQueen from HotelsCombined.com, an all-encompassing hotel site where users can access the best rates from a variety of top travel sites all in the same place, speaks of the benefits that his organisation has been able to access including, (i) rapid prototyping of ideas and ; (ii) A aay as you go model that reduces both up-front outlay and risk as it allows his organisation to scale their compute power as they trial and discard ideas without the need to carry the hosting expense over an extended periods.
