Stephen J Bigelow of TechTarget writes this week about the impact of cloud on IT budgets. Traditionally computing was capital-intensive and depended on on-site technology and staff. When a business needed a service, such as Microsoft Exchange, it would budget for servers, software licenses, and often infrastructure. The business would then wait for weeks (or months) for the servers delivery and installation which would then require deployment and testing. IT staff would assign user rights and if issues arose, IT would deal with them.
