I’m sure many of you reading this have been told at some point – maybe during elementary school – to get your “head out of the clouds and pay attention.” They were telling you to be more serious and to come back to reality. But now that has all changed – there are many reasons today to spend your entire day with your “head in the clouds!”
Cloud computing is the nomenclature often used to describe internet-based computing or a system of using software applications hosted by another company. Many companies today are moving towards using hosted business applications, such as
- Minimal initial investment, predictable monthly costs. A hosted solution does not require you to purchase a new server or upgrade your current server that typically includes the associated costs of an IT staff. Budget easier with monthly operating expenses replacing capital costs.
- Seamless upgrades. The provider can continually add the latest updates and features, thus ensuring the hardware always meet the latest requirements enabling you to upgrade whenever you are ready.
- Make changes on demand. Hosted solutions are easily scalable and flexible.
- Reduced dependence on internal IT resources. This reduces an organizations IT department’s workload, allowing them to focus on more relevant tasks.
Imagine having your ERP System available from anywhere – beyond the office and conference room but to the coffee shop, your home, your client’s office, or anywhere in the world. Cost savings and flexibility abound in the cloud!
