We talked about the advantages of cloud computing, but it never ceases to amaze us what storing your business in the cloud can actually do to help a company. We’ve been in the IT business a while now, and while we might not have heard it all, we certainly do hear one thing over and over again: moving the office to the cloud made a huge difference.
Nowadays, we use mobile, intuitive “smart” phones and other devices that allow us to easily access the web. It only makes sense that the Internet-old concept of storing your things in a safe and accessible place moved with the times and has now landed itself in your pocket – literally.
Imagine being able to access your system, whether it be big or small, from anywhere in the world. You know that time spent waiting for the doctor to call you to your appointment? Or the moments between bus stops on your daily commute? Suddenly they’re productive. It made a world of difference for us, because we found that not being there wasn’t such an issue.
This is not to say that cloud computing replicates a physical office; nor does it mean that employees will be working all hours of the day. But beyond the security and the knowledge that it is always saved, the system accessibility cloud computing lends is undoubtedly a great and useful feature.
