Traditionally programs are run and data is stored on a computer’s hard drive. Cloud computing runs programs and stores data on the Internet.
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is one type of cloud computing. Webmail (Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo Mail), Salesforce.com, Office 365 and QuickBooks Online Essentials are examples of SaaS.
Business innovations like this are a two-edged sword. Adopting it or implementing it the wrong way can be a costly mistake. Ignoring it risks letting the competition use it to gain an advantage.
Assessing the suitability of cloud computing involves answering questions like:
- What are the pros and cons of cloud computing?
- How much does cloud computing cost?
- Will cloud computing save my company money?
- Is my data on the cloud secure and backed up?
- Who owns the intellectual rights to data on the cloud?
- What happens when my Internet goes down?
Comp Solutions, LLC will guide your company through these and more in making the decision whether to move to the cloud or keep everything in house.
