How To Save Time And Money For Your Business With Cloud Computing

Guest blog post from Julie Hansen, COO and publisher of Business Insider, a business website with deep financial, media, sports business and digital industry verticals.

 

When you start your business, you want to do what you love, not set up computers. But getting IT right is one of the biggest challenges for small business owners. Choosing hardware, software, and someone to run it all saps valuable time you'd rather devote to driving revenue or recruiting top-notch employees.

 

That's why cloud-computing can be a boon for small businesses, saving time, money, and energy better spent elsewhere. Moving essential computer services into the cloud alleviates the need for locally-managed file servers to handle email and contact software, among others.

 

Business Insider, the fastest-growing business news site on the web, runs entirely "in the cloud." In this webinar for small businesses, we'll share what we've learned and how it has benefited our business.

Cloud computing is the next level and the future for small and large enterprises.  What small business has to understand is that why the data and applications are located on servers not at their facilities or place of business that security and access are paramount.   Any failure in either could severely damage the ability of the business to conduct business.

For that reason research the tools, the company and the level of support before making a decision.
