There are a number of benefits to using a Cloud computing solution - including cost savings, improved communication and perhaps most importantly, scalability.
Cloud computing solutions can save a large percentage of companies money, due to the fact that it largely reduces the initial investment needed to purchase the hardware. Datacentres can actively host your cloud solution through their own hardware, so you may not need to find that extra capital after all!
Communications - Real Time
Cloud solutions offer an excellent opportunity to communicate in 'real-time' with anyone, wherever they are in the world. One of the simplest examples of the benefits of this is that it allows for files to be edited at the same time with the risk of overwriting or data corruption.
One of the major benefits of cloud solutions is that they are scalable - it is possible to find cloud services on a 'Pay As You Go' system. This means you only need to pay for what you are actually using and if you require additional resources, these can be added quickly and easily. This is particularly ideal for small to medium sized companies as it means they never need pay more than necessary.
