Cloud computing may be a controversial subject today but it is going to be looked at as a revolutionary technology in retrospect. With the US government issuing a Request For Proposal (RFQ) for cloud computing and a few months, we can expect more organizations leaping at the Cloud. Let’s look at what makes it good for businesses.
- Cloud computing helps cut down costs. Operational expenses are reduced with cloud computing. You pay only for what you use; costs are directly proportional to your requirements. Also, the cost of setting up the system is less.
- It is easy to install the technology. Cloud computing does not need businesses to get additional hardware or software. Moreover, the implementation is done remotely.
- Cloud computing is a big time-saver. Businesses save time at the time of set-up, as cloud computing becomes functional faster than other systems. It also ensures fast recovery. Thus, businesses do not lose unnecessary time anywhere.
- It is highly automated. With cloud computing, businesses do not need to set up a team to handle system updates and back-ups. Automation is one of the biggest attractions of this technology.
- Cloud computing frees up internal resources. Automation helps release important internal resources for other high-priority work.
- Cloud computing helps businesses become mobile. Employees can access work-related information from anywhere an example being Salesforce’s cloud CRM.
People are still wary of the perceived security concerns of cloud computing. However, the future version of cloud computing promises to put security fears to rest. Let’s see how the world responds to our government’s decision to embrace the Cloud.
