Abstract: Globalized world of the twenty-first century has made the world flat. Radical “nonlinear change” which brings about a different order is becoming more frequent. Furthermore the pace of change is significantly more rapid. Business networks have become more complex and interwoven. In different industries we witness large differences between the ability of firms to sense highly uncertain and unexpected events and swiftly respond by changing businesses and business processes. Technology innovation, long-term public policy shifts and deregulation are destabilizing the business landscape and reshaping the world in which we live. In particular, the Internet as a communication and transaction infrastructure has led (and will lead) to turbulence and uncertainty in the business and consumer markets. To succeed in this competitive and fast-changing world, businesses need to be more agile and responsive, and they need to keep costs to a minimum. Cloud computing addresses all of these points: agility, responsiveness, cost.
Keywords: Cloud Computing, Agility, Business Agility, IT Agility, Cost-Agility Equation.
