Today we’d like to share a little information about cloud computing. Cloud computing is more than just a technical buzzword; your business can derive serious benefits from the concept. At its core, cloud computing harnesses the power of widespread Internet access to make it easier for you and your employees to work anywhere.
Traditionally, the software you’d use (and the data you’d work on) would be stored on your own computers. In a cloud computing model, your data and software live on an Internet server instead. The benefit is that your data can be accessed and manipulated by authorized users at any time, using practically any Internet-capable device.
Picture your sales force inputting new customer data using cloud applications on a smartphone. In the office, your employees use the same applications to work with that data. To check up on your business, you can load up the same software on your home computer (or your phone or tablet) instantly. As long as you have Internet access, you have access to all of your cloud computing tools and data.
Obviously, security is important here. Both the servers that store your data and the applications used to manipulate it need to be highly secure. A good New Orleans IT company will be able to meet the challenges of this new networking model, and we’re definitely ready for it here at UTSI. Clients using our IT management solutions are poised to take advantage of the power of cloud computing, and we’ll help them do so safely and effectively.
