Department Chair Publishes Timely Book

Mar 02, 2012

Emmanuel Udoh (pictured) – director of information technology programs at American National University’s Fort Wayne Campus – has published a book on cloud computing titled, Evolving Developments in Grid and Cloud Computing: Advancing Research. Cloud computing is the next stage in the IT evolution, providing the means through which everything from computing power to storage can be delivered through the Internet as a service to all users. In the world of the cloud, the user subscribes to cloud services and does not need to know anything about the underlying technology nor own the computing infrastructure, thus eliminating software and hardware maintenance. Currently, cloud computing is offered in different forms: public clouds, private clouds, and hybrid clouds, which combine both public and private. Cloud computing will completely change the way schools and companies use technology to service students, customers, partners, and suppliers. It will eliminate many of the complex constraints from the traditional computing environment, including space, time, power, and cost. A good cloud example is the Microsoft Office 365 that allows global access to cloud-based email, web conferencing, file sharing and Office apps at a monthly cost. At National, our students are being prepared for this fundamental change in information technology, thanks to our highly qualified faculty.
