A Few Benefits of Cloud Computing by Steve Kedzior

Steve Kedzior is familiar with a variety of technology practices that can provide a myriad of benefits to companies that employ them. One such service is cloud computing, utilizing remote machines to host data and run numerous programs.

A cloud computing system can implement virtually any program that a normal computer could run and can store immense amounts of data for a company without them needing to purchase the necessary hardware. This decreases the amount of money that companies must invest in hardware because they would only need to purchase the minimal computer system required to connect to the cloud system. Secondly, because cloud computing allows companies to access machines remotely, they do not need to have the physical space to house large servers on site. Thirdly, the power of cloud computing allows the company to access their data whenever and wherever they are, as long as they can connect to the Internet. Data is not localized to one computer, one hard drive, or the company’s network. Lastly, just as data would be accessible to everyone who could access the cloud, software could be shared by all employees of a company as well. This means that companies would not need to purchase software licenses for each individual computer.

Cloud Computing Growing in Popularity Among Executives, By Steve Kedzior

By any measure, cloud computing has moved with extraordinary rapidity from a concept to real-world practice. New companies continue to discover the immense benefits of cloud computing, and it seems they like what they see.

In a survey just released by Navint Partners, chief information officers and other executives from companies exceeding 5,000 employees were by and large satisfied with their organizations’ transitions to cloud computing. A large majority said that they had achieved savings, increased efficiency, and gained a new competitive advantage.

Although it will take a number of years before the full power of cloud computing is unleashed for public and private use, the survey’s respondents predict rapid future growth. This finding corroborates other reports which suggest that at least three more years will be needed for full development. Two major areas that require further development, as reported in the survey, are privacy and data security. But as these issues are tackled, even further growth in the technology is expected.
