A Study of Economic Impact of Cloud Computing

by Marco Iansiti and Gregory L. Richards

Abstract

In this paper we find that advances in cloud computing likely will extend the IT induced economic growth in developed economies and foster growth in economies where IT penetration is not yet fully mature. We conclude that governments should work together to take advantage of the benefits of cloud computing.
