1. Intelligent Buildings and the Cloud by Casey Talon, IDC Energy Insights (Excerpted from CABA White Paper titled “The Impact of Cloud Computing on the Development of Intelligent Buildings” by Casey Talon, Senior Analyst at IDC Energy Insights.)
As cloud computing becomes integrated into every area of business, new and better ways to utilize this technology abound. There are estimates that cloud computing reduces IT labor costs by as much as 50%, and reduces small business energy costs by as much as 90%. The majority of current users agree that being on the cloud has given them better access and control of their data. In addition, it is estimated the global cloud computing market will grow from $40.7 billion in 2011 to more than $241 billion in 2020. [Read more…]
