Can Cloud Based Applications Empower Your Business?

When businesses speak of the latest modern technology, cloud computing is often something that is brought to the discussion and examined thoroughly. But what exactly is cloud computing and how can it benefit your business? Let’s find out.

Cloud software gives instant updates and feedback

Unlike traditional software development that has to be compiled and distributed to testers, cloud software is deployed instantly thanks to revolutionary services such as Microsoft Azure and Stackify. Azure lets Stackify easily empower fellow developers by offering an ideal foundation for web developers all over the world. In the world of software development, the most critical component that every team should be concerned about is the speed of development and how much time is spent on actually creating and launching the product as opposed to fixing bugs and analysing security problems. This is one of the biggest draws to cloud applications; the ability to get instant feedback and provide quick updates.

Cloud software makes your business accessible from anywhere

Since there are no files to pass around, cloud computing makes it possible for you to access your business remotely. The ability to work from almost any portable device and from anywhere in the world is a massive boon to any business. By offering flexibility with those you hire, you essentially open your doors to the entire world and you can recruit employees that can work around the clock to give you constant progress to your business. This is essential if you want your business to be known around the world as a global powerhouse.

Cloud software reduces the cost of operating a business

When it comes to starting up a business, money is perhaps the biggest thing on our minds. With the introduction of software as a service (SaaS), we’re not able to license industry-grade software and services for a much lower price. This gives many smaller companies the ability to use the same tools as industry professionals, thus evening the playing field and offering everyone the chance to become successful. Money is becoming less of an issue for entrepreneurs and the major defining factor of new businesses nowadays is their ideas and community interaction.

Cloud software opens up the possibility of collaboration

When collaborating using traditional software, it was common for people to pass around old USB flash drives or use an expensive office network to transfer files. Those days are over now with the advent of cloud storage and cloud applications that can be accessed by several people at once, thus creating an environment in which updates are instant and files can be exchanged much faster than traditional methods. For instance, using Google Docs, people are able to collaborate on a single word document or spreadsheet, improving productivity and efficiency among all of the staff. It also helps that you don’t need to be within the same office and there are no hurdles to leap over just to get the system running smoothly. It’s incredibly simple to set up, it’s cheap and it opens up a world of opportunities for your business.
