Top 3 Things You Should Move to the Cloud Today
Posted by Donna Krizik on February 11, 2014
1. Application development
Make your developers happy by using Cloud-based assets for building, testing, and deploying applications. Cloud platforms cut overall development time by 11.6 percent, according to a recent study by Evans Data. Collaboration is also easier with the Cloud, so you can help Bob fix his broken code. Plus, projects don’t have to wait until hardware and software arrive.
2. Email storage
When it comes to keeping your emails, would you qualify for a spot on TV show “Hoarders”? I understand that when services are offering up 15GB of space for free, we feel like we’ve won the lottery! But most companies don’t have unlimited space, which is where storage in the Cloud becomes your BFF. Not only will sending your email archive to the Cloud keep servers working optimally, it provides protection for your data. Email archiving services are affordable, easy to use, and often more secure than an on-site option. Plus, you never know when you’ll need those silly holiday party photos to resurface for some necessary office humor. You can’t chance losing those!
3. Document management
You have just remembered that you’ve saved and forgot to remove your comments from the draft your boss sent you. The draft with all of your personal comments in it, including the words “ridiculous” and “are you kidding me”. Are you rushing to the office in a panic to delete those comments? Not if you have document management in the Cloud, which lets you access your files from anywhere, on any device. Like email archiving, online doc management is usable, affordable, and secure. A bonus: Instead of emailing bunches of attachments and tracking modifications, collaboration becomes easy-peasy.
