Innovation, the Real Benefit of Cloud Computing


The National Institute of Standards and Technology cites the following as the benefits of Cloud Computing:

  • eliminates upfront capital expenditures and dramatically reduces the administrative burden on IT resources,
  • allows organizations to add and subtract capacity as their needs change and to pay only for what they use,
  • provides reliable services, large storage and computing capacity, and 24/7 service,
  • enables agency IT resources to focus on business-critical applications,
  • means organizations are no longer faced with choosing between obsolete equipment and software and high upgrade costs; they are always using current technology.

Sure, no one can argue with any of these, however what we have come to see firsthand at Caspio again and again is that the simplicity and the low cost of building apps in the cloud fosters creativity and innovation the likes of which has never existed.

No longer big budgets or advanced technical skills are a requirement to bring new novel ideas to the market. No longer must business professionals get complete buy-in of corporate IT departments to introduce a new efficiency or a new automation to the enterprise. That’s the true benefit of the Cloud Computing that can propel business and government forward.

  1. Frank, Caspio has enabled me to deploy a novel concept for tracking my own personal & family information collected at numerous doctor visits, mechanic shops, etc. I polished the idea and dreamed about it for 7 years. It coalesced in a matter of weeks after I found Caspio; and that’s weeks of part-time work after my day job. I’m not a software developer, but using Caspio I’ve built a sophisticated calendar & event planner/tracker.

    This is not really intended for you to post because it would seem a bit self-serving, but I wanted you to know that I’m loving Caspio.
