Cloud Computing uses the Internet and central remote servers to maintain data and applications. It allows consumers and businesses to use applications without installation and access personal files at any computer connected to the Internet. Centralizing storage, memory, processing, and bandwidth results in far more efficient computing.
The way people use technology to better their lives is changing.  While only a decade ago it was common for us to have just a desktop computer and maybe a laptop, we now use multiple devices to work more efficiently, enjoy more entertainment, and connect with each other on a day-to-day basis.  Today, it’s not uncommon for a user to have a desktop computer, a smart phone, a laptop, and even a tablet device.
Emerging technologies like software – as – a – service (SaaS) and cloud computing introduced the whole new dimension of business related software technologies, like open source CRM, mobile CRM, social CRM and cloud based CRM. Still there are doubts and strong debates about which CRM you should implement in your organization cloud or on – premises and which CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system is the right choice for your organization?
Software and hardware that’s available for use over the Internet is a cloud computing. They are available on demand just like electricity that’s accessed from the grid.
That’s because, with cloud computing, companies can plug right into an on demand, pay-as-you-go source of computing power, rather than manually manage those complex processes. This easy, seamless access to computing power essentially eliminates the need for bulky local servers, as well as the huge investments that come along with them.
Your dashboard allows you, for example, to dig beneath your 20% sales growth for the year and find out what’s driving sales up. With a couple taps on your keyboard you can mine the data to discover what’s beneath the trend—whether it’s new customers, a growth segment, a new product or, perhaps, a sales representative who has found the magic formula.
When application components reside in different locations, visibility issues arise that can hinder a holistic view of the corporate environment and create a disconnect between IT operations and the enterprise in terms of timely, effective decision making. Will moving to the cloud make your organization more agile? Will the cloud computing improve productivity? What are the security and compliance implications of cloud-based storage? Maintaining a business-centric cloud strategy keeps the emphasis on business objectives rather than focusing exclusively on specific cloud features.
Cloud architecture – the means of using and storing data over the internet rather than on a local hard drive – has benefits as well as drawbacks. Proponents of cloud computing services point to reduced environmental impact, cost effectiveness, and its ability to make data more mobile. Detractors cite security issues, records of poor customer service, and server downtime as serious downsides to using cloud computing.
Faster connections and expanded bandwidth continue to mold the mobile experience as usage skyrockets and expectations escalate. These technological advances have spurred a burgeoning interest and investment in cross-platform mobile app development by enterprises of all sizes.
Theoretically, migration to Office 365 should be a no-brainer. This cloud-based version of Microsoft’s Office suite ensures that corporate data is centralized, manageable, and secure, instead of disparate data residing on multiple on- and off-premises devices. But because Office 365 is a collection of applications vs. a singular product – which adds significant complexity to the effort – it is vital to begin with proactive planning.
