The cloud rocks. No, it is not perfect, but it has a lot to offer. With a multitude of business benefits, it is clear why the leading software makers in the world are all in on bringing solutions to market.
We are considering moving our CRM system online, too. I am waiting for the performance of CRM Online to stabilize, and I think Microsoft is almost there. To take down another server to manage just makes a lot of sense. We have gone from a hosted environment requiring five servers down to three, and I expect to be on zero in another year.
As we continue to migrate to the cloud, we have less hassles with VPNs. Our data, the software, and entire experience is available from nearly every web-enabled device. The best part about it is that almost everyone wins—great for customers, great for partners, and great for software vendors!
Yes . . . the cloud has some growing pains, but with so many vendors betting the future on it, I think it will get better—faster than most evolutions of technology. Yup, the cloud rocks. I am ecstatic to see where it will take us.
