Reasons for using Cloud Computing

One of the core benefits of cloud computing is the ability to automatically sync data across any devices you use to connect to the application. There are a number of reasons why this is useful, and why you should consider cloud computing when you utilize several devices for access.

Automatically synced data
Cloud computing means your data is automatically synced across any device. That’s because you’re not accessing data stored on your own device, but you’re tapping into a remote server. No more sending file attachments to yourself via email; everything you need is right at your fingertips, regardless of where you are.

Accessed from anywhere
When you’re using the cloud, you have instant access to all your data. It’s stored remotely, so you can access your personal or company information from any Web-enabled device.  No more pre-meeting calls to obtain the most recent statistics – users can even pull up information from a laptop live during a presentation.

No special software necessary
One of the biggest problems with traditional, on-premise solutions is that you must have the same applications stored on the devices you want to connect with. If you need access to an on-premise application and you don’t have a mobile app, you’re out of luck. Like your data, the software programs run in the cloud are stored remotely.

The Apple vs. PC debate is null and void
If your company utilizes a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) model, you likely have some users with the Apple’s iOS platform and some with Android-based devices. Ordinarily, this could be a concern for tapping into on-premise applications and solutions. With cloud-based apps, however, it’s a non-issue—the only thing needed to connect with these applications is an Internet connection.

Easy collaboration with team members
Because data and documents are automatically synced, multiple users can collaborate on a single document with ease, without the need to send files back and forth and merge changes. Team members in different office locations can even work simultaneously on the same document, in many cases, with seamless and automatic data merging so every person with access is always viewing the most recently updated version.

Remote work more functional
Business travel and remote work used to be a challenge. How can you provide your team with the tools they need on the road? Before cloud computing, enterprises were faced with ensuring proper installation on all devices used as well as manual data feeds. Now it’s easier than ever to work in the field with cloud-based apps that offer immediate updates, no software installation and automated collaboration.

Automated backup and recovery
Picture this: You’re on the road, furiously working on a document on your way to a meeting. Suddenly, your mobile device loses connection—and all that data you just added is gone. This kind of thing happens, and if you’re working with a file stored on-premise on your device, you could be out of luck. But if you’re working in the cloud, your data is likely saved as you go, meaning your data remains intact even if a sudden mishap occurs.
If you’re in any type of situation in which you must access a set of data from multiple devices, nothing is more functional than using the cloud. Productivity is amplified by reducing the painstaking administrative tasks of transferring data back and forth, leaving you—and your team—to focus on what’s important knowing the needed data is at your fingertips and up-to-date from any device.
