You probably already know what cloud computing is. Cloud computing comes with a wide array of benefits that vary between users, but there are a few that are pretty consistently cited.
Cloud enablement is the process of analyzing an organization’s existing landscape, then architecting, deploying, and operating a portion of or its entire in-house IT infrastructure, software, and resources to either a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment. A cloud enablement initiative can encompass migrating servers, operating systems, databases, business applications, and more to the cloud.
