Cloud computing is a technology that allows remote access to software, file storage and data processing using the Internet, which is an excellent alternative to running on a personal computer or local server.
Beyond its definition, what is really important is that cloud computing has radically transformed business models and business strategies, making it possible to accelerate innovation processes and reduce costs, not only for large companies but also for small and medium-sized enterprises.
Cloud computing provides companies with greater flexibility in relation to their data, being able to access it from anywhere and at any time, which is ideal not only for companies with headquarters in different locations around the world, but also to facilitate collaborative work between individuals in the same location.
In short, cloud computing is an intelligent way to take advantage of the benefits of the hyperconnection provided by the Internet, helping to eliminate hardware maintenance costs and software upgrades, and allowing the integration of all company information in a single place.
And what does it bring to companies?
The main advantage is that it makes it possible to have all the company’s information updated in real time. In this sense, the cloud allows control of the data, being able to choose which users have access to what type of data and with what level of permissions. Another great advantage is the virtually unlimited storage capacity, which frees up the computer and improves its performance.
It also helps to generate a much more fluid communication between departments, avoiding errors, duplications, inefficiencies and wasted time. Especially if employees work remotely or in different departments, cloud computing favors collaborative work, allowing documents and information to be shared in real time. Another of its great advantages is especially valued in unforeseen situations of data loss, since data recovery is one of the key aspects. Through cloud computing, data will always be available, even if we delete it by mistake. In addition, it is a multiplatform technology, which means that it can be accessed from a laptop, tablet, smartphone or computer just by having access to the Internet.
In short, cloud computing provides businesses of any size, the ability to access a set of applications designed to manage all information related to different business processes remotely and integrated.
