Assignment 1: LASA 2: Cloud Computing Virtual Overview
Description of LASA:
For this assignment, you will use Microsoft PowerPoint and Jing to create a professional, cloud-based presentation of approximately 10–15 slides. Your presentation will provide a summative overview that reflects on the material that was covered in Modules 1–5 on cloud computing. Review the scenario and follow the directions below to develop and upload your presentation.
Scenario:
You have recently accepted a position as the director of New Cloud Initiatives at CloudHR, a company that provides various cloud-based solutions for human resource applications. During your first week, the CloudHR’s director of sales and marketing informed you that his or her sales team is spending considerable time explaining the basics of cloud computing to prospective customers. He or she asks you to prepare a high-level overview presentation on cloud computing as well as provide a link to the uploaded presentation. This way, his or her team can forward the link to prospective customers.
Tasks:
In your 10- to 15-slide presentation, include the following along with detailed speaker’s notes:
Define and describe cloud computing as it relates to one’s business and personal needs.
Using real-world examples from current providers, explain what an organization should consider when reviewing each one of the following services:
Software as a service (SaaS)
Platform as a service (PaaS)
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS)
Discuss and justify the benefits of cloud computing for both providers and consumers of cloud services. Make sure you include:
The benefits associated with the pay-on-demand nature of cloud computing.
The ways with which cloud computing assists with business risks, such as mitigation of security risks and disaster recovery.
