Cloud computing continues to make fast inroads into IT infrastructures offering access from any location and multiple devices. The major players like Microsoft, Google and Apple continue to quickly expand their product offerings and most software used in business is available as a Cloud service on a pay-as-you-go model.
The power of Cloud computing lies within the fact it opens up applications and documents to any device that is connected to the Internet. Employees are no longer required to be in the office to get their work done – they can accomplish most tasks remotely, allowing for improvement in productivity, especially for businesses who have staff based externally. The extra flexibility staff members can enjoy results in increased output and lower costs, often in terms of office expense and travel expense.
Lower costs and higher productivity are certainly achievable with Cloud based solutions.
