Speech Title: Cloudization and Green Technology Sustainability for Corporate Social Responsibility

Cloudization  and Engineering Sustainability remains an essential aspect of providing effective industrial portfolio for delivering cost savings systems that will enable the achievement of energy saving and environmental sustainable applications in both the business and industrial sectors.
The issue of virtual usability and awareness management strategy may result in achieving excellence in energy efficiency and usage, environmental considerations and energy re-use strategic models. The return on investment (ROI) as strategic outcome of cloud computing model may restore and create value analysis for organisations with huge energy wastage without thinking of cost, environmental impact and carbon emissions.
Cloud computing is a recent development of the future generation communication technology which contributes towards industrialization and commercialisation of product development in terms of virtual applications and service delivery through the internet for the purpose of cost benefit and usability of business and enterprise services
Cloud computing can be defined as the concept of delivering virtual services through the internet medium using electronic devices to achieve competitive edge with respect to cost savings, improvement of performance, efficiency and effectiveness.  The services may focus within FIVE of the different service domains, such as:

  • Public Cloud
  • Private Cloud
  • Hybrid Cloud
  • Community Cloud
  • Education Cloud
The choice of each or combination of the cloud services will depend on value analysis, cost savings, improve performance, competitive edge and Marketization of the deliverables and monetization in terms of financial benefits for the industries
