Cloud Computing is Here to Stay
Phrases like “the cloud is the future of technology”, “the cloud is revolutionary,” and “the cloud will change the way companies run forever” are often thrown around in today’s business world, and for good reason. Cloud computing is perhaps the biggest shift the IT industry has experienced since the introduction of the internet and will create a massive impact in the sector for the foreseeable future.
A recent study from the SMB Group, a technology industry research, analysis and consulting firm based in the US, reported that 92% of small companies now make use of at least one cloud business solution, with 87% using at least one cloud infrastructure solution — these are big numbers. The report also shows that these numbers are expected to rise as more business owners and decision-makers turn to the cloud to support their business model and growth.
With cloud computing, small businesses can get access to the same types of IT services that were previously only available to large enterprises, for an affordable, predictable monthly price.
