Get on Cloud 9
Get your head in the Cloud
… there are a plethora of cheesy cloud sayings that could be employed here (and let’s be honest they have all been used in the past) in an attempt to wave pom poms for the benefits of Cloud computing.
Much, heaps, lots and then some has been written about the benefits of Cloud computing.
…. cue wind up music. I’m bored. It’s a no brainer.
However, the take up of a comprehensive cloud infrastructure by small and medium businesses is nowhere near what it could be or should be. Gone are the days where a slick, accessible anywhere infrastructure is only within the reach of the top end of town.
While large corporations have had means to develop custom built interfaces for a long time, this no longer a dream for the chubby guy with the deep pockets.
Small to medium guy in the back this song is for you.
In parallel to the emergence of the SaaS (software as a service) concept, the software providers themselves have really lifted their game not only in functionality but particularly in terms of how the individual software chats to its friends.
No small business can afford unnecessary time and costs to relay information from one system to another. Information is needed FAST to make good decisions and meet customer needs
Successful businesses keep costs down in tough times and in good times.
Successful businesses lay down good foundations to position them to scale up FAST when the time is right.
Successful businesses have current information at hand to remain agile in decision making.
Successful businesses exceed customer expectations … and let’s be honest, in this day and age expectations are high.
Critical to achieving all of these success factors is a quality, integrated infrastructure. A mini eco-system where everything takes place on your web browser – e-commerce online sales, real time inventory tracking and logistics and up-to-date financials. Here’s a taste of what can be done categorised by business needs.
This type of solution, regardless of your size or stage of life cycle, is much more accessible than you think. I hate to rain on your T8 parade, but with an integrated application infrastructure housed in the Cloud, before you know it, you and your staff will have a sophisticated suite of tools available for you to work from anywhere, at any time.
