Thinking out Cloud

March 28, 2012

Cloud Computing has revolutionised how companies can store and share data. SME’s in particular now have access to greater computing power. This remote computing power is transforming the way SMEs do business. One of the advantages to Cloud computing, is the safety of your data.

  1. Flexibility

    The second you move to FTTC, a cloud-based service can instantly meet the demand because of the vast capacity of the service’s remote servers
  1. Disaster recovery

    When companies start relying on cloud-based services, you no longer need complex disaster recovery plans. Cloud computing providers take care of most issues, and they do it faster
  1. Work from anywhere and collaborate – improving efficiencyAs long as employees have internet access, they can work from anywhere. This flexibility positively affects knowledge workers’ work-life balance and productivity.If a company doesn’t use the cloud, workers have to send files back and forth over email, meaning only one person can work on a file at a time and the same document has tonnes of names and formats.Cloud computing keeps all the files in one central location, and everyone works off of one central copy. Employees can even chat to each other whilst making changes together. This whole process makes collaboration stronger, which increases efficiency.
  2. Better security
    This can have some serious financial implications. However, when everything is stored in the cloud, data can still be accessed no matter what happens to a machine.
  3. Greater scope for smaller businesses
    The Cloud is democratising IT and enabling many SMEs to act like or appear to be organisations of much greater size and scope. This has a positive impact on industries and the economy.




In a nutshell, Cloud computing increases efficiency, helps improve cash flow and offers much better security.
