There has been a lot of buzz lately around the idea of putting organization software to the Cloud. Microsoft and Cisco are creating commercials around the concept, but we have found that many clients do not understand the concept of the Cloud.
To begin, the Cloud is basically a fancy term for putting information on the world wide web. For many years, security has been a large concern for companies, and when the web was still in its infancy it compelled companies to create desktop applications to protect information. We are now in a new, more secure time, and with the advent of online banks, security on the net has become far more robust.
Still, why bother putting your organization's applications online? We will give you three simple reasons.
More and more companies are realizing that in order to save money in office expenses and attract new talent who do not want to relocate, having their employees work at home is a great option. If your staff can access your data on the Cloud, the demographic and financial strains of rent may be a thing of the past. This is the beauty of remote connectivity.
In order to keep data safe, it is important to have copies of data in different locations. If your office burns down tomorrow, will all your data be safe? This may be the most compelling reason to embrace the Cloud. This is the essence of redundancy.
Are you tired of mailing, faxing or even emailing your clients information? How about a central password protected website that your clients can login to at will in order to access all your information? Think of the savings created in postage costs, long distance charges, and, most of all, wages. This is web interactivity at its finest.
