Cloud computing enables businesses to create a flexible and productive workforce, that has secure access to company data from anywhere.
From teams working remotely, onsite or simply on the road, you can operate when and wherever your customers need you most.
Cloud Computing removes the isolation of company data and applications being stored on an office-based fileserver by providing “rented computing space” on a hosting company’s server that can be accessed from any device (personal computer, tablet or smart phone) via the internet.
Essentially, Cloud Computing is simply using a 3rd party provider’s server (or servers) to store your data. Great examples of these types of companies include:
- Microsoft 365
- Amazon AWS
Benefits of Cloud Computing are that it:
1.Removes the need for workers to be in the office to access IT systems
2.Enables a flexible and remote workforce
3.Improves security and reduces management cost of maintaining your own company server
