What CFOs Need to Know About the Cloud

“The Cloud” has become one of the hottest buzz topics in the industry this year, and what started out as a topic mostly of interest to IT executives is quickly moving to the radar screen of CFOs and Finance Executives.  To help companies understand “the cloud”, as well as the advantages and considerations of cloud computing, Oracle has recently published a number of articles, white papers and videos on this topic. 


Some of the advantages of cloud-based applications include improved time to value, reduced up-front costs, leveraging 3rd party skill sets and having a scalable environment to support future growth.  Some of the considerations and risks include security, performance, integration of cloud-based applications with on-premise systems and long-term costs of ownership.


Here are some links to articles, case studies and videos covering what CFOs should know about the cloud on Oracle C-Central:
