Taking a Look at Cloud Growth

Taking a Look at Cloud Growth

In today’s modern business world, you’d be hard-pressed to find an organization that doesn’t utilize the cloud to at least some extent. Let’s take a dive into how businesses use the cloud to be more sustainable and efficient.

Understanding How Business Computing Has Changed
It wasn’t so long ago that users needed the physical copy of a movie to watch it, but with the advent of streaming at an affordable monthly rate, people are finding that they are spending less money and still getting all the access to movies that they love. The same can be said for television series, as you don’t have to wait for the airing time to watch a specific episode.

This cloud-based model has been adopted by many companies that provide software to organizations. Rather than purchasing licenses, businesses instead choose to pay a monthly fee for each user to access this service through the cloud. Of course, when it’s absolutely needed, the organization might still choose to purchase the software outright, but cloud computing is generally considered the standard.

Why Cloud Computing Is So Popular
Rather than selling consumers installation codes or discs, the cloud enables organizations like Adobe and Microsoft to deliver services to users based specifically on what they need. Here are just some of the many benefits:

  • Reduced Piracy: The cloud is able to prevent software piracy simply by making it more accessible. The solutions are better protected by the developer, as the user needs an account to access it. Plus, if users have more access to these solutions, they will be less likely to seek alternative means of accessing it through piracy.
  • Reduced Business Requirements: On-site infrastructure also plays a role in how often users can take advantage of software solutions. While businesses would need to implement full-blown workstations in the past, cloud solutions enable workers to access services on any device they own, whether it’s a slimmed down workstation or their laptop.
  • Reduced User Restrictions: Users are less restricted by resources when they use the cloud for certain services. For example, the momentary “genius” moment where you’re not in front of a computer won’t help if you have no way to record it. The cloud gives employees the opportunity to take advantage of solutions on mobile devices, making them much more accessible when needed most.
  • Reduced Financial Toll: A user might need a large down payment for purchasing a software license, as well as all the services fees required to maintain the infrastructure. Software as a service through the cloud makes it so that software is more accessible and affordable to businesses.
