Business in the Cloud

Cloud services is a growing innovation in the technological world. Apple, Google, and other tech giants provide a cloud feature where users can store their data. This allows users to access their data anywhere, with any device as long as there is internet connection. An example is Apple’s Icloud service where Apple users can store music, movies, and more which they can manage and monitor on their own. The cloud focuses on the data needs of a user, but it can extend its functionality for businesses as well. Companies can really benefit from cloud related services because it would be easy for them to manage their own data like how gadget users manage their music, movies, etc. The cloud is a growing environment for data, and its potential does not stop on personal data only. 

What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is the use of internet to deliver hardware and software services instead of having physical hardware and software in the workplace. Cloud computing lets users store, manage, access, and process data on the internet instead of a local server or a personal computer. This process makes use of a network of remote servers who can reach those who have access to the internet.  

Why do Companies Cloud Compute?

Businesses start to realize that having an IT department is not their core competency. They make use of cloud computing to focus solely on their business. Taking up a cloud computing application like Salesforce.com is deemed to be more cost effective, reliable, and allows them to allocate resources to more needs.

When there are shifts or changes in the market, business are less flexible to adapt and take advantage of them due to their significant investments in technology. They are less capable responding to competitive pressures because the capital, people, or time are not available in the measure needed to react. Cloud computing takes away those barriers because they allow the company to direct the use of technology to their sole business, without worrying about the costs of an onsite data center.

For small and medium enterprises, cloud computing is a really good investment considering the amount of labor and capital to be saved from IT departments to focus on their business itself. This gives them the capability to worry less about technological demands and to focus on their market needs instead.

Cloud computing gives lets companies do business without borders. They can have access to their applications and data anytime and anywhere there is internet connection. Nowadays since data connections are stronger, more people will access to the internet on the go.
