Running head: CLOUD COMPUTING
Characteristics of organizations more likely to use cloud computing
Organizations increasingly prefer cloud computing to reduce costs as well as increase
flexibility due to the pay per use policy and speed of data access. For example, in firms that rely
heavily on data analytics in marketing, cloud computing provides the necessary solution for big
data needs. Moreover, firms that are heavily reliant on online marketing such as Alibaba need
cloud computing to not only market their products on the global market but also benefit from
more accessible data analytics, fewer costs of data storage and access as well as better
management of financial transactions online. Cloud computation allows easier aggregation of
data from multiple sources without heavy financial outlays.
Organizations in the financial industry are also benefitting from cloud computing because of
the minute by minute reporting, update and tracking of financial data to give a competitive edge
to vital investment decisions. For example, Goldman Sachs is one of the firms that adopted the
technology early and through cloud computing, the firm has been able to manage risk better as
well as enhance innovation. Tech startups have been driving innovations in recent times with
new ideas and solutions (Kasemsap, 2015). However, their data needs are significant since they
rely on big data to market and deliver their products and services to a global audienc...
