Kelly’s Cloud Computing Clarity

Kelly Services’ new whitepaper explains and heralds the cloud computing platform.

APAC, 1st August 2011 – Kelly Services, a global leader in providing workforce solutions, puts forth it latest whitepaper, Cloud Computing: Making the Right Connections, in anticipation of the cloud platform that will be the new standard in corporate data and systems management.

The whitepaper explores the concept known as cloud computing, where organisations around the globe have begun to share and store digital information via virtual, off-premise servers that are accessed through numerous types of connections, primarily the Internet. By using shared multitenant servers, employees are able to log into a Web-based service containing all programs needed to complete daily tasks, thus eliminating the need for individual sets of software for each employee’s computer.

With cloud computing, a name inspired by the cloud symbol typically used to embody the Internet, a variety of computer services are now available to individuals from a storehouse of shared computer processors.

Off-site connectivity is fast becoming the norm for an increasingly digitised workforce, and understanding the concept of cloud computing is now an integral part of meeting the challenges of a borderless global office.

With cost savings and a yet unmeasured potential, the future of cloud computing is rife with promise and possibilities. This whitepaper explains the core concepts and dynamics of what cloud computing is about, and in turn, explores how we can exploit this rapidly evolving technology.

Mark Sparrow, Head of Professional and Technical Recruitment, APAC, in launching the new whitepaper said, “We are always looking out for the latest trends, whether in technology or best practices, to further enhance our service and delivery standards to our clients and talents.”
