For all the hype, the real potential of cloud has yet to be seen. While enterprises have been attracted to cloud by the promise of dramatically lower capital and operating costs, many challenges still remain for the potential of enterprise-grade ‘IT-as-a-Service’ to become a reality.
The Forum's work in cloud is targeted at solving these challenges and developing best practices and tools that help all players meet the needs of their clients and partners as they deliver and consume digital services hosted in the cloud.
The Enterprise Cloud Leadership Council (ECLC) is a practical, results-based body comprised of many of the world’s largest multi-national companies, dedicated to sharing actionable best practices, standing up real-world reference implementations and advancing the adoption of enterprise cloud operating models.
