Cloud Computing

Cloud computing stores abstracted IT infrastructures dynamically and tailored to an enterprise’s needs. Services are accessed via the Internet. There are many reasons why an enterprise may wish to outsource its life systems or its test environments to the cloud.

On the client’s behalf, SCS is developing applications that take great advantages of cloud computing: cost savings and risk outsourcing and flexibility allowing to deal with the volatility of the business area. Dynamic use of capacity and economies of scale are examples of benefits of cloud computing that SCS could exploit on behalf of our customers.
