Speaking with a client yesterday, I was a little taken aback when he said he’d not heard of cloud computing. For me it’s a very common term and has been for a couple of years, but I work a lot in the tech sector so this should be expected.
However, cloud computing offers too many opportunities for any company so I wanted to find and share with him an introduction to what it’s all about. As you might expect, Salesforce.com has produced an excellent intro video (see below) which explains the fundamentals in simple terms.
Whether you want to reduce costs by shifting your email infrastructure from Microsoft Exchange to Gmail, or speeding up your customer relationship management with Salesforce.com rather than an expensive enterprise edition of SAP for example, Cloud Computing is definitely a journey you want to go on.
