Advantages in Using The Cloud for Your Business

There is nothing that makes a business easier to manage than the ability to have quick, ubiquitous information sharing. These days, everything is moving to “the cloud”, a system that involves a large number of computers that can be connected through a real time communication network, making the spread of information easier and more efficient.

The cloud computing service is comprised of computers, servers, and data storage systems. When you sign onto a web based email service such as Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, or Gmail, the information is stored in the service’s computer cloud, not on your computer itself, thus eliminating the burden on your physical devices. For businesses in particular, we recommend Google applications, which allows you to increase your security, share contacts within your company. Google Apps is the leader of this space. Another leader in this space is Salesforce.com, which we also recommend as your main hub for managing all sales and lead opportunities. Companies of all shapes and sizes are adjusting to the concept of this new technology, and there is no doubt that it will continue to develop over the coming years.

Key Advantages:

  1. Easy Access: Once information is stored in the cloud, it can be accessed anywhere that Internet access is available.
  2. Cost Efficient: Traditional desktop software as well as costs for licenses, maintenance and upgrade can be very expensive for a company. Cloud computing enables sharing resources, which lowers costs, creates efficiency and allows for increased capacity.
  3. Virtually unlimited storage space: Running out of storage space is no longer a problem
  4. Backup: Most applications that use the Cloud automatically update and save files by themselves, so backing up information on a physical device is no longer an issue.
