The past year definitely made the case for cloud-based computing, as the cloud is what empowered many companies to move to a remote workforce in 2020. Cloud-based technologies have more than proved their worth these last 12 months. If you’re still running your business off local servers in your office, or have hobbled together several cloud-based technologies out of necessity, it’s time to get strategic about the cloud.
The Case for Cloud-Based Computing
Imagine a workweek where every tool you need is at your fingertips, whether you’re at the office or at home. These tools work seamlessly together. The document or spreadsheet you’re working on is automatically saved and backed up, so you never lose your work or your data. You never accidentally delete an email. The recording of your last meeting with your client is available to review as soon as it wraps up, and you can share your notes from that meeting with your colleagues with a click of a button. When you log off for the weekend, you know all of your data is safe from harm because it’s protected by two-factor authentication and automated backup.
That’s what cloud-based computing can do for your workweek. It takes away many of the frustrations you have about storing and sharing files, collaborating with your team, and backing up physical servers.
