Impact On The Work Force

A Little About Cloud Computing In The Work Force!

Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the Internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer. Cloud Computing is used everywhere. Such as your Gmail, smart phone, and even your computer. The "Cloud" is where all your saved data or information is stored together. In work you have to save documents and papers, how are you going to do that without saving it? You can't you have to save it. So, next time you save something thank the cloud.

Cloud Computing Impact On Work, Employment and Vocation

Cloud computing encourages file storage, partnerships, virtualization, and access to computing cycles. The number of available applications that are reliant on cloud technologies has grown to the point that little to no education institutions do not make some use of the Cloud. This helps schools promote collaboration, productivity, and mobility in teaching and learning. Businesses use cloud computing to protect data, develop applications, deliver software and online platforms, and to work together.

Positive View Of Cloud Computing!

Cloud Computing in basic terms is sharing computer software, documents, and data through a shared connection rather than each device using it’s own servers and information. Cloud Computing at work can be influential. For an example, companies with lots of moving pieces can collaborate on projects using many computers rather than having a project that is limited to one space and one employee. Cloud Computing in the workplace can revolutionize the efficiency and expand the limitations in companies and corporations. In the future of cloud computing, more secure networks could protect company information more than those of current clouds. A hybrid model of the cloud could also create more efficient workplaces and speed up production in numerous industries. The market for Cloud Computing is also on the rise, with huge corporations spending millions of dollars in order to incorporate the systems into their companies.

Benefits of Cloud Computing

Cloud computing offers your business many benefits. It allows you to set up what is essentially a virtual office to give you the flexibility of connecting to your business anywhere, any time. With the growing number of web-enabled devices used in today's business environment (e.g. smartphones, tablets), access to your data is even easier. There are many benefits to moving your business to the cloud:

Reduced IT costs

Moving to cloud computing may reduce the cost of managing and maintaining your IT systems. Rather than purchasing expensive systems and equipment for your business, you can reduce your costs by using the resources of your cloud computing service provider. You may be able to reduce your operating costs because:

  • the cost of system upgrades, new hardware and software may be included in your contract
  • you no longer need to pay wages for expert staff
  • your energy consumption costs may be reduced
  • there are fewer time delays.


Your business can scale up or scale down your operation and storage needs quickly to suit your situation, allowing flexibility as your needs change. Rather than purchasing and installing expensive upgrades yourself, your cloud computer service provider can handle this for you. Using the cloud frees up your time so you can get on with running your business.

Business continuity

Protecting your data and systems is an important part of business continuity planning. Whether you experience a natural disaster, power failure or other crisis, having your data stored in the cloud ensures it is backed up and protected in a secure and safe location. Being able to access your data again quickly allows you to conduct business as usual, minimising any downtime and loss of productivity.

Collaboration efficiency

Collaboration in a cloud environment gives your business the ability to communicate and share more easily outside of the traditional methods. If you are working on a project across different locations, you could use cloud computing to give employees, contractors and third parties access to the same files. You could also choose a cloud computing model that makes it easy for you to share your records with your advisers (e.g. a quick and secure way to share accounting records with your accountant or financial adviser).

Flexibility of work practices

Cloud computing allows employees to be more flexible in their work practices. For example, you have the ability to access data from home, on holiday, or via the commute to and from work (providing you have an internet connection). If you need access to your data while you are off-site, you can connect to your virtual office, quickly and easily.

Access to automatic updates

Access to automatic updates for your IT requirements may be included in your service fee. Depending on your cloud computing service provider, your system will regularly be updated with the latest technology. This could include up-to-date versions of software, as well as upgrades to servers and computer processing power.
