Cloud computing is having a dramatic effect on some of our work practices. Employees are working with many different devices such as laptops, tablets and phones, in any location across the world, supported by cloud computing. The transition to cloud computing helps organizations scale more quickly, adopt new technologies, and benefit from the flexibility of a “pay for what you use” model. Here are a few ways in which cloud computing can improve your working environment:
Improving collaboration and increasing efficiency
Cloud computing lets employees collaborate by providing access to information and the ability to share and edit that information at any time from any location. CIOs can now manage their organization’s entire infrastructure from a single, centralized location. This means that scaling a business becomes much easier as users can be added to networks and systems quickly, where ever they may be.
Incorporating latest technologies
Mobile devices let employees check emails and applications anywhere, and provide a more productive platform for accessing information and gleaning actionable insight from that information. A Sage survey recently found that over half of respondents, including both executives and employees, have used a mobile device to access work-related information or applications.
Reliable and secure
Cloud computing has become so efficient, reliable and secure that you can now run Tier 1 business processes on a reliable and scalable platform that is highly available and cost-effective.
