(The following is an executive summary of the whitepaper "Utility Computing - The Value of Business Computing Without Headaches." If you're researching Houston computer services, we urge you to check out the full version of the whitepaper.)

1. Technology Challenges for Contemporary Business

The greatest contemporary challenge to business is adapting to continually changing market conditions. This challenge drains both financial and human capital. Corporate assets are expended on cost-reducing rather than on revenue-generating priorities, often leaving inadequate infrastructure plaguing corporate performance, reducing productivity and draining profits.

These technology challenges unfortunately increase exponentially with growth. A battle ensues to keep up with customer driven demands.  Continual advances in technology only increase corporate burdens by forcing investments in newer technology on a continuing basis. This usually occurs without internal expertise to properly implement and utilize Houston technology services which, in turn, produces a devastating effect on productivity and profits.

2.  Realizing the Value of Technology without the Headaches

Utility computing is a unique alternative to owning and managing technology investments.  Utility computing enables business planners to accurately forecast the costs of their information technology. Just as electricity, water and telephone utilities allow customers to pay only for the amount of services they need, utility computing allows organizations to pay only for the technology infrastructure they require, without purchasing, managing and supporting a complex and expensive infrastructure in house.

With utility computing, companies enable their technology infrastructure to adapt, change and grow as their business necessitates.
