INTRODUCTIONThere are phenomenal changes and growth can be seen in Computing services in recentyears. For many firms there was great requirement of such things to reduce their capital,maintenance and operating cost. Moreover, they require more comfortability in dynamic scalingand adopting new services without affecting the existing organizational structure. Though, ITresources were there for managing the organizational work, however, after cloud computing theywere able to perform more better function and had improved performance. Many organizationhave shifted from single operating system to cloud computing, as there are abundance ofresources which user can access as per his own wish. Cloud computing is the areas over internetwhere real time services and solution are provided and consumed. From year 2012-2016, totalgrowth made for this things is around $238 Billion (Hwang, 2017). Following assignment isabout the issues and problem faced by organisations in maintaining and organizing their ITresources. Further, guidance are provided for more flexibility, higher computing resources andscalable services. Along with this, current technological issues that has raised has beendiscussed. After that solution for using the appropriate technologies are evaluated and at lastsolution are provided for those technologies.Issues faced by organisations in providing scalable, flexible, highly available computingresources.Organization are facing various issues regarding saving and safe guarding the data. Manyorganizations have paid more than billions so that they can store their private information of thecompany and other personal details. In order to keep the organization up to date with changingregulation, hardware, software and skill set they have to make changes. They require it so thatthey can face the changing technologies so that organization can keep pace with its opponentsand can make progress. Further, organization have higher operational agility and needs to savetime in making the large investments. Using the technologies they wanted to grow further, andwanted to use the user friendly application which can be easily used by the managers and otherhigher members that wanted to access the data at any position and place. There are various issuesfaced by the organization such as in maintaining data, providing higher flexibility, scalableamount, and greater computing resources. Along with this, there is more requirement of securitywhich has been major concern for the organizations like IBM, Accenture, and CSC. ComputerSciences Corporation was started in year 1959, and has made global presence in more than 60+1
counties. The firm is leading provider of IT services and provide solution for cloud computing.According to IT professionals, there are 5 areas where these companies are more focusing, theseare enhancing and protecting business value, cybersecurity, data classification, data managementand mobile platforms and social media. There were issues due to which companies were unableto develop their long-term strategy and were unable to align and integrate the IT risks. Nowfirms contains lots of private data that they are unable to manage and strengthening the securityand privacy. Other problems such as organizing, managing and securing growing amountsinformation was difficult to manage(Rittinghouse and Ransome, 2016) .Cloud computing has three service models these are SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. SaaS stands forSoftware as a service, where there is need of network, operating system and Software. However,in PaaS, that is, Platform as Services requires operating system and network. IaaS, Infrastructureas a service where only network is provided. The deployment of the cloud services can be basedon public, private, community and hybrid cloud which is also known as combined cloud(Almorsy, Grundy and Müller, 2016) .In organisations it is mostly used because it reduces the complexity of networks, there isno need of software licence. It provides more customization than other available resources.Further, it can provide more specialization into the areas that the firms wanted to develop orevolve. There is no fear of losing any data and it is more efficient, reliable and scalable. Thereare various application of it such as social networking sites, E-mail, search engines and manymore that are available at internet.Evaluate technologies that can address these problemsIn grid system there were many problems such as they were not reliable and does notprovide quality of services(Zhang, 2016). The main advantages that it provides over the gridsystem is that it has technologies and tools to figure intensifier parallel applications with cheapcost when compared to traditional parallel computing techniques. No other software andhardware were able to provide the extensibility, security, cost effectiveness, collaboration, workremotely or could keep centralized information. Moreover, there was need of self up gradation atregular interval so that data can be protected and other devices can be restricted from accessingit. Other than this, organization like CSC needs to provide the application, software or hardwarethat can provide following characteristics, on demand self-services, broad network access,resource pooling, rapid elasticity, measured service, dynamic computing infrastructure, IT2
