ANDOVER, Mass., July 26, 2010 – NaviSite, Inc. (NASDAQ:NAVI, news, filings) a leading provider of cloud-enabled enterprise hosting and application management services, today announced the availability of a podcast on Global ETM (Enterprise Technology Management), an independent resource for IT executives, on the scope and transition of cloud computing services. Within the podcast, titled “NaviSite: Smooth Transition,” NaviSite’s EVP and CTO Denis Martin and President Brooks Borcherding speak with Enterprise Management Associates’ (EMA) Senior Analyst Steve Brasen about defining the scope of the cloud, reviewing the differences, advantages and challenges of public and private cloud computing, and additional cloud models such as the virtual private cloud.

Within his podcast introduction, EMA’s Steve Brasen remarks, “Today we’ll be talking about public versus private cloud computing, certainly a hot topic and one around which there is a lot of confusion. I don’t seem to be able to pick up a trade magazine these days without seeing repeated references to cloud. According to EMA primary research, in fact, 11% of all businesses have already adopted some form of cloud services in order to achieve their business objectives. This is very fast adoption we’re seeing, for what is reasonably considered a fairly new technology.”
EMA projects cloud computing to be a $40-$50 billion industry by the end of 2011, growing to $160 billion by 2015 — predicting 100 percent growth each year for four years.
“Cloud computing has gathered so much hype because it is a true revolution in the way companies are consuming IT resources. Very rarely have we seen this magnitude of change in IT,” commented NaviSite President Brooks Borcherding. “Cloud services have the promise of not only providing a reduction of capital expenditure, but also mitigating the complexity and increasing the operational efficiency of IT, whether it be within the infrastructure, the people or the processes involved.”
