What is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing is a synonym for distributed computing over a network and the ability to run a program on many connected computers simultaneously. It also refers to network-based services which appear to be provided by real server hardware, but in fact are served by virtual hardware, and simulated by software running on one or more real machines. Such virtual servers do not physically exist.It can be scaled up (or down) on the fly without affecting the end user.

Cloud computing is the anchor supporting the mobility, big data and social media trends that transform how organizations and individuals engage with one another.In 2013, automation and self-service -- characteristics of cloud computing -- will eliminate the need for certain IT support and upgrade tasks, according to analysts at Frost & Sullivan.

The bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend also eliminates some support tasks as well as procurement activities. "The market for Asia Pacific public cloud computing is expected to hit US$12.1 billion in 2016," said Andrew Milroy, vice president of ICT Practice at Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific. "Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia have emerged as the next hotbeds of adoption for cloud computing."


Benefits of Cloud Computing

  6. Improve accessibility. You have access anytime, anywhere, making your life so much easier!
  7. Monitor projects more effectively. Stay within budget and ahead of completion cycle times.
  8. Less personnel training is needed. It takes fewer people to do more work on a cloud, with a minimal learning curve on hardware and software issues.
  9. Minimize licensing new software. Stretch and grow without the need to buy expensive software licenses or programs.
  10. Improve flexibility. You can change direction without serious “people” or “financial” issues at stake.

Cloud Computing for Business

Cloud solutions, or software-as-a-service (SaaS) tools, are very easy to implement. It is as easy as you can just sign up for an account with an email address. By using cloud-based email, project management, accounting and other services, all operations in a company can run as optimally as possible.

Cloud solutions require much lesser cost than on premise ones, and small businesses don’t need to worry about on-site maintenance requirements. By using SaaS, you can save a lot of time, spend your investment wisely and upgrade in real time.


How to start using Saas?

First, find a company to partner with that can coach you along as you look at software options. The good ones will lead with a strong business angle first, explaining their methodology, best practices and providing plenty of sample projects.
