The Benefits of Cloud Computing for a Small Business

Cloud computing is being hailed as the best thing since the post-it note for modern business owners. Are you sat there wondering what it's all about? Business owners, big and small, successful and new ventures are turning to this new way of doing business. Gone are the days of traditional applications for your desktop. Long gone are the days of paper and pen, even! Figures suggest that within a few years, more than three-quarters of small businesses will be using cloud services, and there are numerous reasons why this will be so. Here is a guide for beginners. After all, with so many small businesses jumping on board, it's got to be something worthwhile.

What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is as simple as it sounds: it's computing based remotely, by utilizing the internet. Traditionally, a small business owner would have made use of a number of different applications on a desktop. The apps or programs would be downloaded directly onto a computer or a server. Nowadays, there is no need for this as cloud computing allows for the same applications directly from the internet. It's not just businesses that make use of this system. Facebook, for example, uses cloud computing as does your mobile banking service. Even the Government of Canada makes use of cloud computing. It allows you, as a business owner, to view, edit, and access all your important information from anywhere in the world. You're no longer tied to the office or forced to work using a specific computer. As long as you've got an internet connection you can run your business from China to Timbuctoo.

Compelling Benefits Of Mobile Cloud Computing

 
Written by Kenneth Evans

Most individuals who are a bit tech-savvy have heard of the word "mobile cloud computing" at least once. But what really is mobile cloud computing? Many of us are aware that these tools which enable personal users and businesses access their files, images, documents and other data remotely by utilizing their mobile computing devices and the internet. This term incorporates a number of clouds and mobile computing application, though.

Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) fuses the universal smartphone and the fast-growing cloud computing market. As one of the major present-day technologies, MCC has demonstrated itself to be of great benefits to both cloud-based service providers and mobile users.

User-friendly mobile apps are designed using this method and are hosted and powered by cloud computing technologies. The MCC approach has to assist app developers India to design applications, particularly to mobile owners, which can be utilized irrespective of the capacity of the device to store data or its operating system. Here, the role of data storage and data processing are carried out outside the mobile phones.

Cloud Computing technology has become highly popular in the recent few years, so much so that people sometimes forget that these luxuries didn't always exist. It hasn't been long ago when we used to delay work because the file was lying on our system in some other place or used to carry our USB drives, CDs, or floppy disks wherever we went. Now, however, everything has become storable, accessible, and editable on the cloud, eliminating the need for carrying hardware everywhere. 

The way in which we share information has been revolutionized with cloud. Both everyday technology users as well as the business world are enjoying the benefits of the shift. It was cloud that enabled massive open online courses (MOOCs) in 2012 that scaled organized education for the first time. Since then, the industry is growing at a rapid pace as it has much more room for growth, innovation, and development. Every industry, be it banking, education, health, agriculture, or any other business have significantly progressed as stakeholders have taken advantage of the cloud instead of setting up physical infrastructure. Let's check out the recent trends in cloud computing technology. 

2018's Best Cloud Computing Software

Cloud computing is quickly rising as the go-to alternative for hardware-based storage, with many businesses reducing their reliance on expensive and vulnerable hardware as time goes by. Many businesses are opting to store everything in the cloud and, given the multitude of cloud storage service providers out there, they are not having any trouble finding the right one.

It is easy to see why this is such an attractive solution for modern companies. With data being an extremely valuable commodity, businesses are looking for the most secure environment in which to store it. There are plenty of cloud storage providers out there which utilize military-grade software and hardware to provide these secure environments where data is safe from hackers.

Opportunities for Big Data with Cloud Computing



Article Written by Agnieszka Podemska

The term "big data" refers to sets of structured and unstructured digital data that are too complex and voluminous to be processed by traditional technologies. These sets of data can be mined for information by businesses. Big data is often described using 5 V's: Volume, Velocity, Variety, Veracity and Value. Volume refers of course to the large amount of data that needs to be processed. This data involves e-mail messages, photos, videos, voice recordings and social media posts. Velocity concerns the speed at which new data is generated. Variety refers to different types of data. Veracity relates to the reliability and relevance of the given data. Value equals to the profit businesses can gain by having access to big data. 

In order to store all the data we need innovative big data technologies that go beyond  traditional database solutions. Cloud computing enables efficient big data processing and it is available for businesses of all sizes. The current technological advancements in cloud computing for big data processing open new opportunities for businesses:

Protecting Your Organization's Cloud

As organizations move to the cloud, the next evolution of Network Access Control takes shape to meet business demands.
 

What are the chances that your organization has moved some of its data, systems, programs and applications to the cloud? Quite high. According to a Synergy Research survey of IT professionals, spending on private cloud and cloud-enabled solutions grew by 16% between the second quarters of 2015 to 2017. During that same period, traditional, non-cloud data center hardware and software dropped 18%. It is easy to understand why these days, cyber security threats are coming in through many new channels and vulnerabilities that are not part of the traditional IT infrastructure such as, mobile devices and cloud-based applications. The following prevalent trends in the enterprise highlight why it is essential to monitor your network with a Cloud Network Access Control (Cloud-Based NAC). 

Company Networks Go Global

Organizations are becoming perimeter-less. Traditional IT perimeters have been torn down by the adoption of BYOD, IoT devices, telecommuting and cloud computing. Therefore, one can no longer look at the network as a defined infrastructure within a physical firewall. The network is essentially global without boundaries. According to a Gallop News Service poll from 2015, 37% of U.S. workers had telecommuted for work, and this was up by 30% from the last decade but four times greater than the 9% found in 1995. Perimeter-less companies require continuous risk-monitoring and risk-assessment that can match the ever increasing mobile and cloud-based reality and this can be performed best via the cloud.
