Cloud computing is the latest phenomenon to shape the evolution of IT systems. Reply works with clients to ensure that they are ‘cloud-ready’. Reply and cloud computing: the power of the internet and a pay-per-use model


Within the many new propositions being offered under the cloud computing banner, Reply has identified its role as being twofold: a service and technology provider, and a solution and service integration enabler. With this focus, Reply can best support clients in the implementation of the innovative, internal processes required by the conversion to cloud computing applications, infrastructures and traditional software environments.

Using cloud computing, companies are able to set up IT as a service, with the ability to model and organise their current IT systems to provide the following:

  • Improved service: the provision of ‘self-service’ with on-demand management services;
  • Scalability and flexibility: an effectively ‘limitless’ capacity and power for the user, delivered as and when they need it;
  • Allocation of resources to benefit from economies of scale: in other words, the ability to provide services to a greater number of users, while being able to adjust the assignment of resources dynamically, to reflect demand;
  • Internet technology usage: using the Internet as a unique channel for communication, distribution and access to resources and services;
  • Service metering: monitoring the usage of services offered to calculate costs on a pay-per-use basis.
