Reduce up front IT costs
Don’t know what the Cloud is? Basically it’s an IT option that allows you to have some or all of your IT services like File Sharing and Email hosted off site.
Why would you do this? Well it can help reduce up front IT costs like buying and maintaining servers.
Due to the redundancy of most applications in the cloud, your applications will have less downtime and also allow your work force to work anywhere at any time. All they need is an internet connection.
A great example is email
No longer is an Exchange Email Server required in house. Options are now available to have your email in the cloud at the fraction of the cost it would be to buy, install and maintain an Email Server yourself.
This also allows you keep all your email, calendars, tasks, etc in Outlook automatically synchronised at all times with your smartphone device.
