IDC introduces new Cloud Decision Framework (powered by Alinean) at IDC / IDG Cloud Leadership Forum in Santa Clara

A special sold-out workshop session kicked off the IDC / IDG Cloud Leadership Forum, the Cloud Economics 2012 Workshop, discussing  the latest findings when it comes to cloud costs.

Presented by Randy Perry, Vice President, Business Value Consulting , IDC and Joseph Pucciarelli, VP and IT Executive Advisor, IDC, the workshop discussed the economics of cloud computing, reviewing its ability to shift expense from capital to operational budgets, and how cloud solutions could cost more in the long run if not not properly managed.

Using IDC’s online Cloud Decision Framework (powered by Alinean), analysts worked hands-on, with participants to evaluate the operational, organizational and financial considerations of their hosting decisions, by helping them quantify the true cost of their cloud initiatives.
