Cloud Computing is the buzzword today. There was a time when there was a whole lot of confusion over this subject. But not today. Cloud Computing has certainly created waves everywhere especially for the businesses where it is being seen as a revolutionary change. For those who still don’t know much on the same, Cloud computing is essentially Internet-based computing where software and all resources are hosted away from a business in a virtual “cloud” in much the same way that electricity is produced and generated away from a business, but is “on tap” whenever it is needed. Yes, unlike how you have been working with the existing technology, cloud computing makes its looks more easier and convenient by freeing you from the basic concerns of having software and hardware within your own premises.

And when we talk about the same, it surely gives us advantage over any other available options. Cloud Computing is being seen indispensable for modern businesses. It has given a new life to the staff who have been associated with these businesses. Along with the convenience and efficiency, cloud computing has certainly helped staff concentrate on what matters most while leaving the technical side of their computer systems to others. Below are the 5 biggest advantages which staff is most likely to enjoy when businesses resort to cloud computing :

1.One of the biggest benefit of cloud computing is that it enables staff to spend less time in maintaining systems.

Its been very common to see precious hours being lost in a typical business to sort out software problems, updating software or reinstalling programs. With a thing like cloud computing, these things can be taken care remotely, thus allowing staff to concentrate more on his own work leading to cost savings and increased productivity.

2.Unlike any other system, cloud computing is quite easy to learn and understand.

Thus allowing you to save hundreds and thousands of dollars in implementing any new system and making arrangements for training on the same. Since people are quiet used to cloud applications like GMail, Google Docs, so anything related to the same is most likely to be understood by the staff.

3.Real-time collaboration is yet another biggest advantage with cloud computing.

This real-time collaboration enables staff to work much more closely together like working on same documents at the same time. This again results in countless possibilities for a business. Hours can be saved in processing of the documents. Cloud Computing allows for a greater sense of collaboration between staff as well as fostering a more dynamic creative process as ideas can be exchanged in real time.

4.Productivity gets boosted with cloud computing.

The staff does not need to be in his/her office to gain access to the files and documents. He can access it from anywhere anytime. Be it the business trips or being at home, staff can really enjoy the benefits arising from the flexibility of new working practices. Staff Moral is likely to be very high in these cases as the working hours will be very flexible giving one’s a sense of freedom.

5.Cloud Computing paves way for new talented staff.

No doubt, most of us are getting used to the modern technology. Younger people seem to be far more obsessed with this tech know-how. Most of them can easily access information from mobile devices, internet cafes and so on. And so having these type of people as business staff is most likely to bring a fresh dynamism to a company without lengthy and expensive training required.

So, here we go. Cloud Computing may not be free from drawbacks but it does look very promising for modern businesses who are in search of cost-effective method of improving the working life of staff and helping fostering a culture of creative growth and improved working conditions. Cloud Computing does the same exactly !!

Nice guest Aswani. I’m not an expert in cloud computer, but this post is very useful and helped me know more about it. Thanks for sharing. Keep writing :)

Bro…if you are not using clouds then you are surely missing something. For me, my day starts with clouds and ends with the same. I have been using cloud based applications like Google docs and I am 100% satisfied. I think it is the best alternative to MS Office. Switch on to clouds bro…you will love it :)

This is a great article. I have used the real-time collaborative editing of Google Docs, and it is fantastic. For the one project I used it for, it boosted our productivity tremendously.

The challenge of cloud computing is improving the perception and reality of data security. That is still going to take some time. In the interim, a lot of applications with non business-critical data will migrate to the cloud and the operators of these applications will enjoy some huge cost savings.

Yes, I agree. very much so. Security is an issue everywhere even at places where you don’t use cloud based systems. But still I am favor in clouds as it can be highly productive for businesses.
