While cloud computing is undoubtedly beneficial for mid-size to large companies, it is not without its downsides, especially for smaller businesses. The latest innovations in cloud computing are making our business applications even more mobile and collaborative. Unlike traditional on-premise software applications, cloud applications are located and managed remotely and built with a single code-base customized to the company’s needs. Cloud applications also differ in that the cloud provider, not the customer, is responsible for the maintenance, operations, and bandwidth of the software.
Finally, cloud applications are typically accessed through standard web browsers, providing scalability and agility to the customer. ITD can offer the following advantages of working with Cloud Computing:
- Achievement and increasing volume output or productivity with fewer people. The client’s cost is smaller per unit, project or product plummets.
- Reduction of spending on technology infrastructure. The easy maintenance is a plus and an easy access for the client to personal information with minimal upfront spending.
- Globalization of workforce. People worldwide can access the cloud, provided they have an Internet connection.
