Imagine walking into your office work space at an MNC one fine morning to find out that it looks drastically different. While all these years you were surrounded by a sea of computers, cables, various enabling pieces of hardware, CPUs and software accompaniments, suddenly you find they have all disappeared. Shockingly enough, your Computer Admin department has become redundant!
Welcome to a new world. Welcome to a smarter way to conduct your business. Welcome to the Cloud.
So what is Cloud?
To quote a hard bound definition collated from industry pundits, Cloud computing entails harnessing the power of the Internet to access critical resources such as hardware, software, and various digital assets available in order to conduct your work and business processes efficiently.
Let’s make it easier.
A different outlook
A simpler way to describe it would be to throw away your hardware and software requirements out of the window. Not because you wouldn’t need them anymore but as there’s a better and more cost-effective option to access it without adding or incurring additional expenditure on IT infrastructure.
So the modern day definition of a workstation would comprise of a computer, with minimal computing abilities, but definitely armed with an interface or browser that can interact with software and hardware physically present elsewhere, on the Cloud that is.
Therefore, software which has been deployed in a Cloud environment becomes your workstation’s Cloud software which you can access to undertake your routine or complex tasks, whereas you use the services of a hardware farm, also known as Warehouse Scale Computers, which could geographically be located anywhere in the world.
Having your workspace in the Cloud can have multiple benefits, right from the most obvious one such as saving on your IT infrastructure costs.
- You can hugely reduce your capital IT expenditure
- No need to worry about software upgrades and updates
- Leverage the economical benefits of ‘Pay as you use’ model
- Cross platform compatibility
- You can efficiently scale up your business model to reflect your business growth
