Cloud Enablement

Definition - What does Cloud Enablement mean?

Cloud enablement is the process of creating, deploying and operating some or most of an organization’s IT infrastructure, software and resources through the cloud. Cloud enablement shifts in-house IT to a public, private or hybrid cloud environment. Cloud enablement service is delivered by cloud enablers or cloud service providers.

Techopedia explains Cloud Enablement

A cloud-enabled organization generally relies on a cloud provider for basic to enterprise grade IT solutions and services. Cloud enablement can have many different models and implementations. Typically, cloud enablement is achieved when the in-house data center or server infrastructure is removed and replaced by a similar cloud solution. This includes servers, operating system and business applications that are accessed remotely over the Internet. Moreover, consolidating in-house servers for virtualization and building a private cloud out of it are other examples of cloud enablement.
