Cloud Computing

Cloud Computing
cloud com·put·ing

NOUN – “the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.”


Having a strategy to enable cloud technology platforms is one of the key competitive advantages available to a company in today’s dynamic marketplaces. Fast growing, successful companies are moving to the cloud and taking advantage of the many benefits that cloud solutions can offer.

 Why choose Cloud Computing?

  • Achieve economies of scale – increase volume output or productivity with fewer people. Your cost per unit, project or product plummets.
  • Reduce spending on technology infrastructure. Maintain easy access to your information with minimal upfront spending. Pay as you go (weekly, quarterly or yearly), based on demand.
  • Globalize your workforce on the cheap. People worldwide can access the cloud, provided they have an Internet connection.
  • Streamline processes. Get more work done in less time with less people.
  • Reduce capital costs.  There’s no need to spend big money on hardware, software or licensing fees.
  • Improve accessibility. You have access anytime, anywhere, making your life so much easier!
  • Monitor projects more effectively. Stay within budget and ahead of completion cycle times.
  • Less personnel training is needed. It takes fewer people to do more work on a cloud, with a minimal learning curve on hardware and software issues.
  • Minimize licensing new software. Stretch and grow without the need to buy expensive software licenses or programs.
  • Improve flexibility. You can change direction without serious “people” or “financial” issues at stake.
