Part 1: So What is Cloud Computing?
A three-part article series that will explain cloud computing, address common concerns with the Cloud, and answer any questions you may have surrounding moving to the Cloud.
Undoubtedly, you’ve heard all the commotion around cloud computing and how it’s the “next big thing.” Yet, despite all the hype, no one really seems to understand what cloud computing is or more importantly, how it can help your firm.
That’s why we wanted to provide some answers in three, simple, easy-to-read articles that will continue through the next few editions of the e-newsletter from WAMS, Coffee and a Byte. These articles will explain what cloud computing is, how it can (possibly) help your firm, and if so, what you need to know in order to make good decisions about choosing “your cloud.”
Why “possibly?” Because cloud computing is not a good fit for every business; and if you don’t get all the facts or fully understand the pros and cons, you can end up making some very poor and expensive decisions that you’ll deeply regret later.
That said, for some firms, cloud can actually lower their IT costs, greatly improve the ability for remote workers to connect and work, simplify their entire IT infrastructure, and genuinely solve a number of technology problems that they’ve been trying to work around for years.
So which are you? By the end of this min-series you’ll know, or at least have a much better understanding. Of course, we are always available as a resource for a second opinion or quick question, so please feel free to contact our office if we can clarify any points made in these articles or answer any questions you have.
