Garrick again… There’s a reason why more than half of businesses in the United States are now using cloud computing for IT purposes—and why researchers predict that the market will grow to $160 billion by this year. From storing music to gaming applications, and yes, cable billing, this technology has redefined how companies do business.
The cloud offers a wide range of benefits– from lower capital expenditure to easier maintenance and upgrades to greater flexibility and mobility to business continuity to improved IT security – for companies of all shapes and sizes.In part one of this series, let’s explore some of the chief benefits of cloud computing.
Businesses no longer have to commit to costly projects that require expensive servers and software licenses. With cloud computing, the vendor takes on the responsibility and costs for the bulk of the infrastructure.
