Cloud computing is, in effect, the use of the internet. When you use an app on your iPhone, that is cloud computing. When you watch a video on YouTube, that is also cloud computing. In the enterprise space, an obvious comparison would be between the line of business application which you may have used for daily activities in the past, and the updated (browser) version which is now available online. The latter offers you more manageable usage costs, as well as removing any maintenance costs for hosting such an application on your site.
Each year, more and more businesses move their IT from onpremises into the cloud to save money and increase productivity. The adoption curve for cloud technologies is growing almost exponentially, and within a decade, we’re likely to see every organisation, regardless of its size, using cloud in some capacity.
When making a decision about whether or not moving to the cloud will be appropriate for your business, you should consider what the pain points are with your existing IT setup. If you have issues with mailbox space, unpredictable costs, large overheads for your IT or unresponsive and outdated programs, then making the shift might be what your business needs.
