With the rise in flexible working in the UK, more businesses are taking steps to enable employees to work away from the office through the adoption of new technologies.
Cloud computing is one such service, allowing companies to manage data and files over the Internet, rather than on a computer’s hard drive.
77% of UK businesses are already using cloud services, and this number is predicted to grow to 85% by 2018. With four types of cloud and a variety of stacks available, including software and infrastructure as a service, there’s something for every organisation considering a move to cloud.
Our guide to cloud computing looks at the various services on offer, as well as the different benefits and potential issues to consider when adopting a cloud infrastructure. It also explores reasons why many companies have already switched to the cloud, including flexibility, scalability and dependability.
