We now have the capability to render in the cloud and are focused on continuous service improvement and wider adoption in the business, which includes improved cost tracking and predictability, for better cost modeling and chargeback, a self-service utility, meaning an on-demand platform, service shared by multiple teams. And finally, our new vision, cloud all in which is to contain the end-to-end production workflow in the cloud."
